i have a cascade that has not broken ground yet after 4+ weeks in ground. bought the rizome this year from freshops and it was semi small with only white dots (almost zit like). everything else came up in 2-3 weeks. the cascade are living ( i brushed soil away and saw that they have shoots about 1/4 inch already) so i am waiting the patient game.
on the other hand, my galena were purchased at the same time and i have one bine about 4 ft. long already.
