Follow instructions included with the plant. It is not too late to plant as roots continue to grow after leaf fall and into early winter. 6 weeks before the Ground freezes is the cut-off time. Dormant roots and bulbs can be planted until ground freezes. However, has your plant be acclimated to outside conditions or has it been in a greenhouse? If it has leaves and you didn't get planting instructions, call the business to inquire. It would be shocking for a plant to go from mild conditions to autumn without at least 5 days outside during the day and inside at night.
