To Mark and others: I was told once to anchor new plantings by
putting a brick or rock on the rhizome after the ground had frozen.
That would prevent heaving if there was a freeze/thaw cycle. I tried
it, and I've found it to work well. Not an iron-clad guarantee of
success, but in the great majority of cases I've had the plants
survive. So you might want to try the same.
