For the most part, perennials can be planted year around, provided the ground isn’t frozen. Below Virginia many nurseries and landscapers plant year around, weather permitting. When planting ‘Lord Baltimore’, remember the only water source the plant has, is its small root ball, and all the water the plant uses must come from there until new roots can grow into the surrounding soil.

Water smart, check the soil moisture by inserting your finger into the loose soil surrounding the root ball and feel for moisture.
