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 part shade to full sun in rich, moist, slightly acid, well-drained soil. It will grow in full sun if the soil is moist. Space plants 12”-18" apart.
Do not disturb the roots. Stake tall flower spikes. All parts of the plant are poisonous if consumed. Height 48" with a 12" spread. Flowers late summer to fall.
