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.
Grow in a moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil that does not dry out; best in full sun or partial shade. Plant with the crown 1-2" below the soil surface, space 12-15" apart.
Propagate by division in spring or autumn.
