Plant Care: apply compost in the spring. In Autumn, trim away dead foliage and prune back to a height of 4 to 5 inches. Once the soil has frozen, apply a layer of mulch to protect the roots from heaving out of the soil. Cover the roots with additional soil if they become exposed. Divide every 4 to 5 years. With my short season I have found early spring time is the best to transplant. They however, usually will not bloom until the following spring. Generally it is recommended to divide and transplant in the late summer.
