dried up looking rhizomes?
I'm new to growing irises and have a question buying them. My local garden center is having a clearance on spring bulbs and a few iris. The iris look pretty dry. How can I tell if the iris are ok to buy? I have never bought iris (I was given some, but they were freshly dug up) and the ones I see in the garden centers always look like they are dead. Lowe's also had theirs on clearance but they looked even drier than the ones in the garden center.
