So, I ordered a bunch of native plants on Etsy, and they were WAY cheaper than they are in stores around here. They came as chunks of root, essentially.

Their site says all the right things, but I mean, anyone can say anything. Or is this just normal pricing for root chunks? $13 for 24 white trillium pieces, for example?
There’s a lot of interest in native gardening in my area, and I’d like to be sure before I recommend this to others.
This is the site I bought from:
