Thanks Donald. That would be so much easier. I have a bed ready and yes I do have access to the lake.

Hello Pearl,

If you have a place to plant them in the ground, I wouldn't bother
with pots.  The reason not to plant in the ground is the chance of
frost heaving - not very likely in your location.  The bigger problem
for you and all the rest of us in this part of Texas is the current
drought.  If I recall correctly, you have access to lake water so a
couple of good soakings should remedy that for the rhizomes.  I
planted some being held in pots in the ground today.  I'm just late
because I didn't have the spot ready, but I've planted successfully
throughout the winter months in my location.  I can only remember
rhizomes heaving one time in the last 24 years - only once in the
winter and not many at that.
