I don't know that they go completely dormant in the summer, but they slow 
down some for sure and they move into more active root growth with the 
arrival of the fall rains. The main thing to remember with them is that they 
cannot be allowed to dry out while they are out of the ground. You need to 
take those rhizomes and remove the wraps and put them in bucket of water for 
a few days. Then pot them up in some standard potting soil and water them in 
thoroughly. Set the pot in a little saucer or plastic container of water for 
a week or so and then remmove the saucer and keep well watered for several 
weeks until you see signs of root growth. Then you can transplant, or just 
wait until spring and put the whole shebang in the ground. They like more 
water than TBs, but they don't have to stand in it. If you use manure in the 
hole keep it low and away from the rhizomes. If you can get them to make it 
through the first full year you are on your way.
