    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.

        They came and when I opened there was only a ball of tiny roots. There was no way they were going to come up but I put a few of the the hair roots in each hole.
