Planting Perennial Roots:
Soak bare-root perennials in water for a few hours before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
Plant in full sun to part sun in loamy to humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil. They need good soil and regular moisture for best performance. The crowns and roots should also never be exposed as this can cause the growth tips to dry out which can stunt or prevent new growth.
Plant with the top of the crown about 1 to 2" below the soil so that the crown and roots are completely covered. Space 18-24" apart. Mulch about 1" deep after planting.
