Depending on what kind of mums these were, they may or may not have survived the winter. Not all mums are winter hardy, and even the hardiest require a well drained location to come through the winter. It is normal for mums to look dried and dead at this time of year. As the spring progresses, if they are still alive, you should see new green growth coming up from the roots around the perimeter of the plant. You can trim off the old stems now, but be careful not to damage any new growth that may have started. I hope they come back for you!
