It is very important to plant as soon as possible after you receive them. If it is necessary to store them for a short time before planting them, open the plastic bags. If the roots appear dry, soak them for a few hours in warm water. Store in slightly moist peat moss in a cold, but not freezing location until you can plant. They can also be placed in pots of soil if planting will be delayed for more than 2 weeks. Use any peat-based potting soil and pots with drainage holes.
Soak bare-root perennials in water for a few hours before planting.
Plant 15"-18" apart with the top of the tap root about 1/2" to 1" below soil level and digging deep enough to plant the carrot-like root vertically without coiling or breaking the roots. Mix a couple teaspoons of bone meal into the planting hole if desired. Grows best in full sun, in sandy, well drained, soil.
May be difficult to move without damaging the root system if they have been planted for a long time. If necessary, transplant only when dormant or propagate by seed.
