If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Perennial plants are those that, once planted, will last for many years. These can include everything from woody trees and shrubs, succulents, grasses, and ferns, to herbs, bulbs, and groundcovers. In the realm of gardening, the term perennial is referring to non-woody plants that have a root system that lives through winter from which leaves grow from in the spring. These garden variety plants are usually called herbaceous perennials. Herbaceous perennials are valued for the variety of sizes, colors, and textures from which to choose and the lower maintenance needed for most of the plants that fall under this title. From dry to wet climates, full sun to shade, and fertile or poor soils, all manner of environments have a host of perennials to choose from that will grow well within the area.
There are numerous benefits to choosing perennial plants to use in landscaping. One of the most considerable advantages is that they require less annual maintenance than annual plants. Gardeners can save time by not having to dig up and replant flowerbeds yearly, in addition to reapplying mulch and fertilizer. Once perennials are established, their deeper root systems allow them to easily obtain nutrients from the soil, requiring less direct care, and the roots help improve the structure of the soil by means of aerating. Any nutrient or water a perennial’s roots bring to the surface can be used by other plants that may not have been able to obtain them otherwise. As the central part of the perennial dies back in fall and winter, the foliage will often remain and can act as a cover crop to protect the soil and prevents moisture loss. Perennial plants are usually easier to propagate as well. Due to their expansive root system, new plants can easily be dug up and transplanted to produce new plants.
