Spring growth is sturdy. Stout leaves and firm rhizomes. No evidence for animal damage.All rhizomes took hold, survived the winter, and are growing.
These were last minute mail order. I had doubts they would survive the winter. Planted too late to take hold, too dried out. November I think. They are growing nicely.
This is Red Zinger. Worse condition than the others, later, drier, deader looking rhizome. It's growing very nicely too.
