  I guess the time for counting  rhizomes depends on your reason for 
doing so.  I used to count because I had a price list that at one 
time had about 400 listed, so I did the chore in February or March.

  Back to the counting of increase in a judging setting where the 
fifteen points are considered.  This would no doubt happen in a 
regional or convention garden.  Some conventions extend their 
invitation for tall bearded rhizomes until one year before the 
convention.  Some ask for replacements in case of rot.  I would hate 
for judges to penalize a a clump with this increase rule because it 
was only one year old.  It may pass the 3 to five increase rule yet 
appear to be a slow increaser when compared to the two year clumps.  
I've always thought it would be wise to indicate one year clumps at a 
convention with a special sticker so people would understand why it 
is not so large as the other clumps.  Even if two rhizomes are in a 
replacement clump, it still may not be as large as the more 
established clumps.
