Hey be nice, my losses still hurt too lol.

I don't know Mary Ann. Sad Some are/were spongy with no signs of new roots or increases. While 2 others I still have slight hope for. They put out increases, but the snails ate those new shoots down to nothing.

I go hit hard by squirrels, rabbits, deer, moles, slugs/snails, earwigs (most I've ever seen).

I have never had to worry too much about winter loss but the irises took such a lickin' both from the drought and then being on everything's menu followed by an unusually cold and icy winter that it has been a real test of their stamina. I have several that are trying to decide which way to go. I dug up and potted Bluebeards Ghost and Dividing Line. Cant hurt and might save them.

Hope so, Bonnie. My potting efforts to save Swazi Princess failed. Sad
