canna lillies

My grandmother has had a bed of canna lillies for 40 years. It is about 20 feet long, 5 feet wide up against the house. They have always been very hardy and beautiful. Last year, a handyman put down a layer of dark mulch in the canna bed to help with weeds. It looked nice, but this year, none are growing for the first time. Have they been choked out? what can we do to revive them? They have never really needed any care. They have even survived a few mowings over the years. Any suggestions?

Carefully reach under the mulch to see it any sprouts are coming up. The thickness of the mulch may be making them slower to come up.
Hopefully, he did not use weed killer to also control the weeds before applying that mulch.
Hope you find them ok.
