Here in zone 6 we must dig the rhizomes each fall but we do get spectacular blooms, both in pots and in the ground. The shorter varieties work best for us here in the windy Texas Panhandle, but with support the tall ones do well and they all look lovely.

In warmer climates you maybe able to leave the tubers in the ground with heavy mulch. But for me in Zone 6 I have to dig the tubers before first frost.Clean and let dry good.Pack in dry peat and store in cool dry place.
