The rhizomes on the right look good to me....as long as they are hard.  Last year a friend of mine game me four rhizomes in October that looked much worse than the ones on the right.  Three of them bloomed this past spring!  As long as rhizomes are kept dry, they are pretty tough and can take a lot of abuse.

I received two iris rhizome orders in the mail yesterday.  Both came from CA.  I was so terrible disappointed with one of the orders that I called the company in question to request a refund.  She assured me that the rhizomes in question would grow....just to plant them and I would be pleasantly surprised in the spring.  I have been growing iris for over 25 years and I have been hybridizing for about 3 years.  I have never ever seen iris that look this bad. 
I would love to know if you think the iris on the right side of the enclosed photo will grow.  These are iris from the 2 different companies that I received from.  I sent this picture to the company when I requested a refund.  She politely told me to just plant the iris, but did not want to refund my money.  Is there a chance that these might grow in your personal opinions???????????????????

ps:  I deliberately did not mention the companies names because I am not in the business of making trouble for anyone.  My concern is just going to the trouble to plant all of these iris and getting nothing in return.
