Two of the three have broken ground and started climbing the third not so much

If you want a reasonably informed response, you need to provide a clue where you are.

Otherwise...Right now my 15 crowns are buried under four inches of leaf mulch, and we still have some snow on the property.

So, nothing showing at all. Which is right for these parts...

Cheers!

They were green with shoots when planted but then had a good bit of rain and some cold. The shoots wilted away. Still seems to be rooted in well just brown and dormant or dead looking. The other two look good

The green was most likely left over from last season.

Give 'em time, I went 14 for 15 on my first year rhizomes by just being patient...

Cheers!

I've oft seen it stated as .5 to 2 pounds dry weight per crown. After two years that seems about right to me...

Cheers!

First year should focus on root growth.
