I'm sorry but without knowing what the plant is it is impossible to give you specific advice. However, to make a guess, since it was shipped now I would guess it is something like a tropical or other non-hardy plant such as a canna or caladium. These can be started early in pots and protected from cold tempertures or planted directly in the ground after all danger of frost. If you wait, keep them in a cool spot (45 degreees)but well above freezing. I'm sorry I can't really be more helpful.
