for two or three years. Las month the laeaves went tan / brown from top to bottom. I presume that they died though why I dunno, as they have come thru the winter green. Could overwatering (we had a rough bit of rain) do this? I have pretty decent drainage in my soil type. Also, any recommendations on where to get replacements?
Nice photos and descriptions! I just pulled several corms apart for replanting myself, and sharing... The weather here is like a pogo stick. Up and Down, lol.
Thanks!

It could be over watering. Check the rhysomes and see if they're soft. http://www.almostedenplants.com has the for sale.

hi Gordon thanks for your advice early this year...I haev had to move since i wrote in. The new location seems better. Whats more, they surbvived TWO transplants. I also believe they are going to be ready to divide! the leaves are att 90 degree angle; from a BENT TUBER, WHICH WOULD MEAN DIVISION IS POSSIBLE RIGHT??? I am tres excited.....
thanks for your advice and help again!!
