It is very important to plant as soon as possible after you receive them. If it is necessary to store them for a short time before planting them, open the plastic bags. If the roots appear dry, soak them for a few hours in warm water. Store in slightly moist peat moss in a cold, but not freezing location until you can plant. They can also be placed in pots of soil if planting will be delayed for more than 2 weeks. Use any peat-based potting soil and pots with drainage holes.
Soak bare-root perennials in water for a few hours before planting.
Plant crown at soil level, 18-24” apart. Prefers partial shade or shade; tolerates dry shade but needs moisture in sunny conditions. Variegated forms require moist soil and will scorch in sun. Grow in well-drained soil that is moderately fertile and humus-rich.
Keep old foliage over winter to protect crowns. After the ground freezes, apply a loose layer of oak leaves, pine boughs, or straw. Divide in spring.
