Planting Day Lily Bulbs

I may have planted day lily bulbs that already had roots too deep in ground. What should I do? Its been about 2 weeks since planting and I still haven't seen any growth. I planted them about 4-6 inches deep with the top of the crown not at soil level.

Hardiness Zone: 9a

I think you have to give them more time-- another week or two before doing anything. It's good that the roots are getting established, although I know it's hard to wait for the top growth. Here's more from a gardening site:
