Answer: Unfortunately, they may have dried out completely and died over the winter. However, if they are still alive, you should soon see new shoots appearing from the original crown. In the meantime, go ahead and trim away the old growth. Up until mid July, the shoots should be pinched back each time they grow a few inches so that the plant becomes bushy and full. This will make more blooms this fall. In July, stop pinching so the plants can go ahead and set buds.
