I planted some bee balm in the fall. We had an unusually warm February in NY and they started sprouting in March. A late snow storm put a stop to that, and now they are dormant while everything else is coming up around them.

I am new to gardening and don’t know if the late snow just messed up their heads and they’ll sprout up later, or if all that icy water on them damaged the roots, and I should plant new ones.

I would give them more time to get going again, they're pretty tough.

Mine have been buried in snow twice since they first came up. They are now growing again and look fine.
