When Should Perennials Show Growth In Spring? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by plewis5

Some of my perennials have not begun to show any new growth yet this year - heliopsis-bressingham doubloon, heliopsis-loraine sunshine, astilbe-cattlyea, eupatoruim-chocolate and anemone-honorine joubert. All my other perennials are sending up green. Should I consider the above-referenced plants casualties of winter or do they just sleep longer than the rest of my garden?

Perennials will awaken at differing times depending on what they are and on their microclimate, so I would not worry yet. Eupatorium in particular normally comes up very late in my garden -- long after I would have given up hope!
