This spring I made up several sprinkler cans of 2 gal. of water plus 1/4th cup of liquid
Dial antibacterial soap. I watered each clump enough to wet the leaves, rhizomes, and
soil right around them. Since then I have had no more rot, and we have had warm weather plus some rain. The one that had rot in the rhizome I scraped to firm flesh and painted it with undiluted Dial. It is fine now.

I am so sorry for not posting my location and for not putting my
subject right. I got the topic list/welcome to the club e-mail AFTER
I am in southwestern VA zone 5/6. If you are a nascar fan I am about
45 minutes from the Bristol International Raceway.
I am really afraid that they are going to rot. It was nice and hot
yesterday, raining again today... We have had a tremendous amount of
rain this spring. I guess I will just keep my fingers crossed and
hope for the best. They look so terrible, I was just hoping there
was something I could do to help them out.

That's what we are here for besides the pleasure of just discussing
our favorite flower.

the perfect formula for rhizome rot. Please let us know what part of
the country you are in.
