Perennials that come to you in pots should be watered well before planting also. Loosen and tight roots and plant at the same depth as the plant was in the pot. If the leaves are green and growing, you should protect them from frosts with mulch, reemay or any blanket. If white or pale yellow shoots have started to develop, protect them from wind and harsh sun until they green up. You can use any of the methods for protection as mentioned. Pay particular attention to watering any new plants during the first season. Once established plants generally have some drought tolerance and will only need to be watered if the season is hot and dry.
Plant 12-18 inches apart, with crowns at soil level in well-drained, moist soil. Prefers part shade, especially if summers are hot.
Deadhead regularly and water during dry periods. Usually grows 2-3 feet tall.
