Canna Lilies

Canna Bulb Winterizing added on November 16, 2017 | Answered

I have the canna bulbs out of the ground and they are in a continuous section (kind of all connected) and there are string like roots coming from the entire section of plants. Should I cut off these roots so I clean away more of the dirt? Also, as I was cleaning away the old dirt, one of the plants root structures broke off from the entire plant section. Is this section still salvageable ( useful for replanting next year or will this not come back?
