any special over-wintering care need to be taken, or just put them in the ground and let them be? we live in the foothills of the cascades and it rains nearly all fall, winter and spring; you know the whole, "clouds need to drop their moisture before heading east over the mountains", thing. I cant even begin to count all the so called "winter safe" plants we've replaced due to root rot. thanks for the advice. i'll definitely do some more looking into this!
