Heliopsis 'Tuscan Sun' still no new growth?

vivian_2010April 28, 2014

I planted 2 of them last August (1 gallon size) and I still have not seen any new growth as of today. We are having a cold spring so far. Just curious if you are experiencing similar late start of Tuscan Sun?

I have two different heliopsis: maybe 4 or 5 of a Tuscan Sun-looking variety and one or two variegated lorraine sunshine. The lorraine sunshine has put up a few little leaves but as for the others I'm just now seeing a few little new leaves here and there. They're still just little purpleish eyes at this point. I'm not too far from IL in MI so I think its safe to say give them a little more time. They already were one of the later ones to spring up (I think they didn't really get going until almost mid to late may last year) and after our winter they're probably a little behind.

Thanks David. I'll be patient and keep my fingers crossed.

Vivian, I have several TS plants and it was only near the end of the first week of May that I began to see signs of life.

I live in Louisville, Ky. I had 7 Tuscan Sun and lost 2. The rest came up a few weeks ago and a few of them are really full and the rest are hanging on.

Thank you Rouge, Betty and Babera!

So a status update for my two TS: one of them did survive and now has good new growth (~ 2 inches tall). Another one right next to it still has nothing showing up. So after knowing your experience, I will keep my fingers crossed and hope it may still be alive (and be patient...)
