Planting Perennial Roots:
It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more than a day, 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 so that crowns are 1” below surface, in deep, fertile loamy soil in full sun to light shade, in groups of 5-7 or more, spacing 12”-18” apart.
Stake taller varieties. To encourage second flush of bloom, cut back after flowers fade. Blooms all summer.
