Mimosa dead from winter temps

I live in Columbus, OH. I believe that my three mimosas are dead as a result of the winter subzero temperatures. They were about 5 ft tall and 2 years old. Yesterday I inspected another mimosa I had seen about 10 miles away and it too showed no signs of life. Is there anyone in Ohio who has seen their mimosas showing signs of coming to life? Perhaps they are just very late, but I have scratched the bark and do not see any green underneath. I had grown mimosas successfully in CIncinnati for about 12 years.

There is one down the street that is looking dead to me. Also in Columbus.

My Vitex doesn't seem to have survived either.

Mine in Troy just started showing signs of life, sprouting out near the ground, so i cut all the dead branches off above that point.

Its about 8 years old, and has died to the ground before, this is just the longest its taken to show any life. I just had a few blooms last summer.

And, the vitex is also sprouting from the ground. Hopefully the mimosas will do the same.
