hems again

I always thought daylilies were easy, no-brainer plants. But here I am with another Hemerocallis question. I ordered Hemerocallis multiflora because the catalog said it was a fall bloomer. Nice way to extend the season.

On the bag it stated, "plant the roots so that the crown is about 2 inches below the soil line." Sounded sort of odd to me, but I figured, since it's a species, maybe it had different requirements. So I did that. (actually, I planted it that way in a pot, not in the ground yet.)

Then I found a pamphlet in the box that says to plant at the original depth, ascertained by the bleach mark on the foliage. (I hadn't noticed any) Then it says, "Planting too deeply stunts growth and flower development."

So, all you experts, should this Hem be planted with the crown at, below, or well below soil level?
