It should have been in a reasonable condition from a company purchase, but I would be very annoyed if I had paid a proper price for them.
Plants with rhizomes and tubers do stand a chance. Give them a soak and see what happens
I have resurrected a peony Sarah Bernhardt from a dry wilted lump of plant in a 50p bag in Wilkos.
(Never the best sellers of garden plants) and some Knipophias from B & Q. I was impressed how they survived.They are both growing well now.
Hemerocallis can be restored as well. You can see the tubers fleshing out after a good soak .
After mine were moved I was very surprised that how tough they were are, just lying about on the garden soil. and an occaisional dip in a bucket for a for a few days. Do not despair too soon.
