Do they break ground late? - Knowledgebase Question

Hi - I've learned that hibiscus breaks ground late, so I've learned to be patient. But how about the following - gaura, caryopteris, lorapetalum - do they arrive late or do I have dead plants? Many thanks.

I know that you've been enjoying some warm weather but it is still technically early spring and your plants won't begin to grow until the soil as well as the air temperatures are consistently warm. Give your plants another few weeks to wake up. I'm sure you'll see new sprouts soon.
