The Q&A Archives: Is my Great Orme Hebe Dead?

Question: My 2 shrubs bought last June Have no foliage and appear dead. Were healthy all last summer. They just look brown and brittle. ARe they dead or just late to grow leaves???

Answer: This plant is generally considered hardy only into zone 9 or possibly 8. Your zip code places you in zone 6A or the colder part of zone 6. Depending on the microclimate where you garden and where it is sited, it might be as cold as zone 5. So I do not think it would have survived. I'm sorry.
