Plants received today and in the ground. One really nice big one, hopefully it takes hold nicely. Many thanks for your generosity!

I'd like to try Cascades.
I have many cascades rhizomes if you still need?

Well almost all of them look to have died, except for one cascade which seems to be hanging in there, albeit growing very slowly.

Looks like I'm going to dig out the holes a lot more and fill them all with potting soil, I think they suffered from heavy rain packing down the soil.

pete, i strongly suspect your crowns didn't die. they went in to shock and dropped all their leave. be patient, new shoots will emerge. it's what happened with mine last year. i wish they're include warnings to this effect...
