I would imagine that the Siberians should do well for you since they are
basically cold climate plants.  As others mentioned on the list they
should have a slightly acid and moist bed.  When preparing a new bed I
till in oak leaf mold, alfalpha pellets, and an acid fertilizer like
those used for azaleas.  After planting I mulch with shredded bark.

My favorite siberian is Jeweled Crown.  This siberian is a show stopper
in my garden.
