    Planting Instructions:



    Soil Preparation:

    Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.


    Sow in full sun in fertile, moist, well-draining soil after all danger of frost has passed in Spring. To overwinter in freezing climates, roots may be dug in fall and stored until spring in dry, cool, >32F conditions. Tender perennial.

    Planting Depth: 1/2 inch
