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.
Performs best in full sun or part shade, in average, medium to wet, well-drained soil. Do not let the soil dry out.
Deadhead to extend bloom and cut back after flowering to basal growth to promote new foliage growth.
