Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Partial shade with rich, organic, moist soil. Will tolerate full sun if given enough moisture. Does not like wet soil in the winter or dry soil in the summer. Mulch plants for the first winter so they will become established.
