    Hillside Nursery in Massachusetts has their spring Cyps available for sale now, and quite a few new Cyp hybrids (need to make room in the garden bed...).

    Any idea if planting these in the Spring works better than planting them in the Fall?

    My impression is that fall planting is better. Less shock to the plant and aborting flowers. Also the cold temperatures aid root development.

    I thought the opposite was true. Sure cold temperatures aid root development.

    I think the conventional wisdom (at least with shrubs) is that as long as temps are around/above 40 F, there is root development. You get too warm, then the plant puts the energy in to leaves.

    Ron Burch's website suggests they can be planted either in spring or fall:

    FYI- the April issue of Martha Stewart Living has a short article on Hillside Nursery, and a couple pics of Cyps and other woodland plants (e.g. trilliums).
