Looks like these survived our 6B not a winter! I pruned down to 1x1 ft approx. yesterday, and hope that was not to much? My question is when should they start to leaf out, assuming I haven't killed them? Thank you,Tina

Hi Tina!

Soil temperature is the key ... the test I use for knowing when the ground is warm enough is to walk barefoot on it. If after ten minutes my feet are cold I know it's time to plant!
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Thank you, but these are already in the ground. They overwintered in the ground. No planting involved. When do yours leaf out in zone 8a?

As I said, as soon as you can walk in your yard without your feet getting cold, the ground is warm enough for perennials to start coming up.

Well, in my experience they are all different. My Shasta Becky remained evergreen as well as some of the honeysuckle. Also the Echinops I planted in Sept did not go dormant. I have Hostas and Daylilies that are 4 to six inches tall already. The Kniphofia stayed green. This is my first spring with Salvia Heatwave Glimmer and thought if it did not leaf out by a reasonable time , which I was trying to find out, that I would plant something else and not have two large empty spaces in the front border. And I don't go barefoot, ever. Lol. Tina

In your zone I'd wait until mid May before I planted. Or, if you know where they are, dig around and see if you see roots.
