Sounds Great Carlos!  Much appreciated.  I don't seem to have much problem with rot with the larger ones.  They grow well here for me.  I have had many different kinds of iris in the orders that I placed.  Quite small ones, Very dry -brown- ones, roots cut to less than 1/4inc, one leaf for a fan.......on and on and on, but I have never received rhizomes that were dry black and without so much as a nub for a root.  I understand that many people at this site, apparently have!!!!!!!!!! So I am going to walk on faith that they will be ok!  If they make it, it certainly will speak to their virulence.  I appreciate your input!

Quite a few people have already comment on this thread.  I've been growing Irises since I was 12 and granted I'm only 26 now, but in all those years of buying Iris for planting here in Chicago, I find that the Iris rhizomes on the right that you are concerned about have a higher success rate than the Iris rhizome on the left.  In Chicago, bigger Iris does not necessarily mean better.  They may look prettier, but in the end, they either rot but send up a small start or two which takes about two year to getting bloom, or it just rots completely.  Believe it or not, I have actually gotten first year bloom out of iris rhizome on the right.
