Is there still hope?

I have about 25 Heuschera and about 20 are growing. The other 5 show no signs of life. Are some later starters than others or are they dead?

If they are completely dried out or rotted, they may be goners. But take a good look at them. I thought I lost Midnight Bayou when I saw the entire top part of the plant had browned out and died, but near the crown there were little signs of life, little purple buds poking out. I'm going to grow it in a pot for a while and see how it does. I think the winter wet, and too much snow did it in, but didn't kill it completely. And it was looking so good last summer. Bummed me out. At least there is still some hope.

coxy I have had some that seem to start later than others. Give them time. I am in Florida and still leafing out. This is my second year with heucheras and I am still learning. I usually give plants to the 4Th of July to declare dead. Paula

Berry Smoothie a week ago. Just waking up.

I looked pretty hard and long and don't see a thing. The weird thing is that they are all in a row and I know they are all different. Most upset about Citronnelle
