Need help planting black cohosh

I just bought two pots of Cimicifuga (Actaea) racemosa. The plants are small.

Should I plant them now in late October/early November or wait until spring? If I wait until spring, should I keep the pots outside or in the garage (unheated)?

Which is more important for the plants: more sun or more water? There are two places that they can be planted. One is at the edge of the woods and gets some morning sun, but won't be watered very frequently. The other is more "inside" the deciduous woods, gets a little filtered sun (under canopy) at various times during the day, but could get more water.

Zone 6b/7a (East Tennessee).
