  Pat, do you remember Dr. Denman?

 Years ago, he taught all of us in the FWIS to get down on our hands and
knees in October and crawl all through the garden with a sharp knife, 
separating rhizomes in clumps to prevent total loss from scorch.  It 
works.  It is rare to lose an entire clump  to scorch if the rhizomes 
have been separated.
