My plumerias seem to be dead after one winter in CA. One is growing new leaves after this winter if losing them. The other 3 are still bald. Are they dead? Why are they not growing back? Help!

Are the stems/branches soft and mushy? If so they're gone, if not there is hope. They need nice warm weather to start their new growth. With our next heatwave coming it's just the right time to give them a nice dose of fertilizer to kickstart their 'summer'. I suggest something with high nitrogen to stimulate new growth and then a high phosphorus food to get them to bloom. Thumbs up

It is irresponsible to advise gardeners and other plant enthusiasts to apply any chemical, without regard to soil conditions, plant needs, and environmental health.
You can see if your plants are dead by scratching the bark with your thumb nail and see if you get green or brown. If green your plant is alive and its brown, then you can cut it off until you get green. In no green then its dead.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
