Months late and only 2/3 survived

The milkweed I ordered came 4-5 months late. They arrived all roughed up with soil spilling out of the cups and roots looking very vulnerable. I put all three in the ground right away and only two survived.

Asslepias syriaca

The plants arrived in perfect condition. About 15 inches tall. However rabbits or deer have chewed them down to the ground. Maybe they will recover but I doubt it. I appreciate how you send out good-sized plants.
