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.
Cover roots with 2" of soil and space 12-18" apart. Thrives in most soils, even moist, boggy ones. Plant in groups or 3 or more. Full sun.
Keep the soil consistently moist until the plants are established, about a year. Water established plants regularly when drought conditions exist.
