Honeysuckle, dead or dormant?

Posted by Fifthelement111 5 (My Page) on

I pruned back my trumpet honeysuckle to about 2 feet from the ground. It was looking nuts, hardly blooming and was literally eating my trellis and was starting to try to eat my garage. It's been a month since I pruned it and there is literally no sign of life or new growth. How can I tell if this poor thing is dead?

Scratch the bark with your fingernail. If the underneath is green and not dry, the vine is probably alive. They are really hard to kill.

bone dry and brown :( shoot. Now my next task will be deciding what to put in its place that will keep my hummingbirds happy. Thanks for the help!!
