I received my 10 rhizomes but was disappointed they didn’t come with planting instructions. I called Tn nursery twice and left messages but no one called me back. I needed to get the rhizomes in the ground so I just planted them sideways. I would not order from Tn because of the lack of communication.
The roots arrived in healthy condition, and should do fine.
The plants are growing beautifully.! Thanks so much!
