Ditto here in Little Rock, Arkansas. Very heartening. BUT I already have my
first case of soft rot, one rhizome of NIGHT AFFAIR which I let be covered
by two big oak leaves. The rhizome's growing vigorously from pips on both
sides even though the main fan rotted away. Tell me, pros, if I handled
this prudently? I cut away the bad part without digging the plant and
sprinkled the whole rhizome with Ajax cleanser with Bleach.

Should I have dug up the plant?

Today we're getting a steady rain. Should I sprinkle on more cleanser when
it quits?
