Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

The perennial plant needs moist shade and is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 5 to 7 in temperate regions. Growing rockfoil requires cool sites which mimic its alpine native ranges. The plants require moist soil, especially in spring when they are growing the most. Give it a location with some shelter from wind and hot sun. Mix in a little compost with existing soil at planting time.
