Mine died to my stupidity. Will try again. I dug up some my Sass irises and the IB and BB and SDB in front of them thinking I would bleach, dry them out and place them back right away only we had a death in the family and it rained so they sat in a bag and the lingering wet on the leaves after I thought I had dried them rotted them before I could get back to them. I will replace those when I can because they died through unnatural causes.
