                Only one of 15 grew. Waste of money and effort. Was not expecting a package of roots. They show pictures of pretty flowers and send you roots. Where were the pictures of dead roots l received? Very disappointed.

                  Nothing grew. I don’t know why I thought my experience would be different than the other reviewers. I took several steps to give these roots a chance. They never had a chance.

                  These are bare roots
                  Yes, it looks like a brown clump of tiny roots because that’s what it is. You plant them, wait some weeks, and they come up. It takes a long time because it blooms in late summer. The product description is accurate and I have 5 beatiful plants out of 5 roots.
