- Plant small groups (three to five plants together), spacing plant groups about 18 to 24 inches apart.
- Be sure not to plant too deep. Do not bury the crown of the plant.
- Plant Lenten roses with other shade-loving perennials, such as ferns, hostas, gingers, foamflowers, and toad lilies, in a wooded garden.
- For a great ground cover, plant them en masse (plants are 12 to 24 inches tall) by themselves.
