Hallo, i would like to know, if my heliopsis can still come up ,also my Phlox(david). I have not seen any groth jet. They were planted last year in a big perennial circle. I live in the country and it is open space. Thanks already for your response.

I would wait a little bit longer to see if your Heliopsis is going to survive - my plants that are up against the house appear very quickly, the ones in my garden away from the protection of the house are slow to appear - but they also are a plant that seem prone to last only a few seasons in my garden - depending on the severity of the winter and snow cover. My phlox is up and due to the heliopsis tendenacy to vanish - I always start a few new plants every spring just in case.....

My experience has been that this plant, while perhaps slow to emerge, is a GREAT survivor, in fact, given half a chance, will take over the world. The young shoots can be a dark reddish green and blend in with the colour of the soil. Don't be too quick to give up hope.
