Pomegranate not leaf out yet: Have I lost it?

We have a 3-4 year old "Wonderful" and it has been doing beautifully, blooming all the summer and producing one fruit each year. This January we moved it to our new house site (still in construction), and the workers had accidentally stroke on it twice.
Today when checking the tree, it hasn't leaf out. The branchs still seem vital, but I'm worried we might have lost it. I feel very bad on this, since this is the one tree that I really like a lot.
Any idea or suggestion? Thank you very much in advance.

I seem to recall from one my father had that they do leaf out quite late. His was moved at quite a large size and survived. If you snap off a twig and it bends before it snaps and is green inside your pomegranate is probably ok. Just keep it watered and wait.

Thanks Flora.I actually the gentleman whom we got the tree from and he told me Pomegranate will leave sometime early May. I don't remember when it leafed out the past years, since it was never a concern for us. And we kind of got ancious because the tree had been moved and knocked. The branches are still green. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Changsong

RE: Pomegranate not leaf out yet: Have I lost it?

This tree has been a survivor for thousands of years! They can come back from a small twig, a small amount of root left in the ground, or from self seeding.
They do choose their own time to come out of dormancy.
They are well worth the wait. Mine are in bloom here now.
Be patient.

Thank you all for this information. We'll keep patient on her. The odd thing is that the cuttings I took late last autumn already leaf out a few weeks ago, and one little baby even set a flower bud. They are all outside on the ground. That makes us especially my husband ancious on the mother plant. But I assume the cuttings might go through different physiological route. Happy gardening, Changsong
