    Best Time to Plant

    No matter when they flower, autumn months are the perfect time to plant most perennials. The flowers are dormant (not growing or flowering) at this time, and will have plenty of time to develop new roots before the ground freezes. This means that they'll be able to soak in water and nutrients effectively next spring.
