Iris rhisomes – storing for long period

Zone Western PA | Anonymous added on September 17, 2018 | Answered

I put some Iris rhisomes in storage - they were in storage for a couple years. When I dug them up, I had let them dry and then wrapped each in newspaper and put in a box. I stored the box, thinking would just be for short period until I moved to new house (the box was stored in a basement). Unfortunately, we did not move for 2 years. and during the move to the new house, they were inadvertently placed in the attic of the new house for a couple months (during the months of July and August). I just found the box and took a look at the rhisomes inside. They appear to be all dried out (shriveled up). Do you think they could still be planted? Thanks for the help.

I'm sorry but they will be too far dried out to plant
