Not scorch.  That gets everything and I hope never to see it again.  Because 
this nearly always occurs on a rhizome that would've/should've bloomed after 
it's been transplanted, I've speculated that stalk/bud formation was injured 
and the rhizome then puts the remaining energy into the attached increase. 
Along the same lines I've wondered if the move caused the increase to get 
priority over bloom as the surest means of survival for the plant and suck 
too much energy from the main rhizome for it to bloom.  In either case it 
acts much like a rhizome after bloom is finished but still provides some 
food and energy to the increase.  I think it won't be a problem next year on 
these transplants.
