If planting from seed, no. It will not begin to grow until the ground temps warm up quite a bit.
If youare planting them from pots, I would wait until frosts would not be a threat, when ever that would be for your area.

I have one that I moved last fall to a sunnier spot. It has not awakened from winter yet, though many other perennials have.

I agree with waiting til your last frost date - you don't want the plant to heave if it freezes, baring the root ball... many of mine did that this past winter.
