Answer: Both citrus and blueberry are considered evergreen, meaning they should have leaves on them year around. There are some cultivars of deciduous blueberry that will lose their leaves in the winter, but for the most part, blueberry plants are evergreen. The rose bush should lose its leaves in the fall and winter months and develop new foliage in the spring. The easiest way to tell if a plant is alive (or dead), is to gently scrape the bark off the stem. If you see green tissue below the bark, the stem is alive. If it's brown or gray, it's probably dead. Check your plants for green tissue. If the stems are dead, keep scraping farther and farther down the stem until you find green material. Good luck!
