Maybe - but some varieties, especially the ones that do really well in my rot
infested garden, tend to die back in the summer/fall, especially if they are
transplanted. The bits of VANITY that I transplanted last summer still look
pretty bald. If the rhizomes still feel ok (like the rhizomes of the ones
that are ok), they are probably alive.
