Are these healthy canna lily rhizomes?

I ordered these canna lily rhizomes online (canna tropicanna)... they arrived soft and shrivelled... the company then sent me a replacement but they arrived looking like this... they aren’t soft but are they meant to be this shrivelled, brown and dry?
That’s really frustrating. I couldn’t find the Tropicanna variety in my local garden centers.
I ordered from JParkers. They will probably refund me but they are out of stock in other places.
farmer gracy are out of stock.
Over the past 2 years I have been getting my cannas from Hart Cannas and all their plants were top quality. The ones I had last year flourished so much that I got an average of 3-4 new plants for each. The ones I received this year were perfect again. They still have quite a lot available so don't hesitate to order through them.
Don't worry too much about how slow they appear, as long as they get lots of sun and feed they will grow and flower promptly. The lack of flowers would be about not getting baked enough or lacking food, they're very hungry plants. Mine did really well because of the heatwave...had to divide them at the end of the season.
