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. 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 a while 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.
