what zone are you, Carlene? I looked up the major cities of OK and they are the same zone as I am[7a].

If you are the same zone as me, you can plant those cana's now. make sure you bury the the roots completely, not like an iris. they will die down during the winter, but will be back with a vengence in the spring.

I would gather fallen leaves and mulch them good with the leaves also. Mine have overwintered in the ground up in SE corner of Kansas for last couple years.

We are in Texas' zone 7 and I planted mine in the fall. They return each spring/summer. I also leave them in the ground during the winter.
