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 crowns 1" below soil surface, 12-18" apart.
Prefers full sun and moist, sandy soils. Tolerates drought, but will bloom longer if adequately watered. Remove spent flower stalks to encourage bloom throughout the summer. Cut back plants at the end of the season or if plants become floppy and unsightly after blooming.
