Hi Stacy,
Well, I purchased some plants late last fall, young plants, and rather than 
try and plant them, I just dug holes and shoved the pot and all in the 
ground. I tried to have the soil level in the pot level to the ground. All 
Hosta came thru not problem. ALSO, I left Fragrant Bouquet with an 
underplanting of H. venusta out all winter in a very large pot and again had 
no problem.  Now I live in Buffalo, NY so unless you are further North, of 
have more severe winters, you should be OK.  Not that this is the "Best" 
planting/overwintering method, but they are rugged plants.
