Planted 6 last summer three ft tall. They bloomed. Pruned one or two crooked branches in hardest part of winter. Spring trees except for China berry and a couple others are leafed out. Redbuds have bloomed and leaves are thick. Vitex show no life in last years branches. Each does have 5-6 healthy 8" tall shoots at base. What if anything is wrong? What should I do? Other larger ones in town show nothing yet either

Wait and see. Are the branches still flexible and green under the bark? They are probably fine. Ours have just recently put on leaves.

If yours are doing what every one else's are doing, I would not be concerned.
