Well, mine are up and growing, about a month earlier than I actually planted them last year. My Cascade rhizome never sprouted last year and I pulled it out this year. It appeared to be dead and rotting. Anyway, the Magnums are growing and the sprouts look much thicker this year. They are about 3 inches tall and already the stalk is pretty much as thick as it ever got last year by the end of the summer. I went ahead and trimmed back all but 3 of the thickest ones down to the base. Hopefully this year I'll get a few flowers at least.
