Plant roots in rich, cultivated and well-drained soil in early spring or late fall. Trees prefer to be planted to a depth of at least 2 feet in loamy soil with lots of organic matter. Avoid planting near large trees, which absorb the moisture and nutrients from the soil. New plants can be grown from the older ones by cutting off sections of the root in the early spring and planting in a suitable location. They require very low maintenance. Mulch should be spread around the roots in the spring to help keep the soil moist. Most bushes will require staking in the early spring before the blooms appear
