Wow! Good list :)

Oooo I just looked up annual Catchfly....NICE! I only have the perennial Lychnis that stays green all winter and blooms in spring. I believe it's called German Catchfly. Also Snaps are perennial here (most of the time), but were definitely perennial in my zone 5b-6a Eastern WA gardens where they were mulched....got bigger and better each year :)

Wow! Long list.

I am happy to say that even though I started sowing late this year, I am finally getting lots of sprouts.

My sweet alyssum sprouted in less than a week!

Vera, I did have a snapdragon that came back every year but I think it is not coming back this year due to the harsh winter we had. I did not notice any new growth when I cut the old stalk earlier this week.

Terrene, wow less than a week is impressive! I love alyssum they are so cheery and have such a nice fragrance to them.

Ladygladys, do you think you lost anything else to the winter? I think I lost my lupine, some young hollyhock and malva -- no signs of them in the garden yet and they're usually sprouting by now. Can perennials rot? From Dec. 1 - March 17 we didn't go a week without snow, usually a few inches or more each time. Worst winter I can remember.

I'm resowing all of them, but that means another full year before blooms. :(

Caryltoo, so far it looks like just the Snapdragons and a Foxglove that never bloomed for me after 2 years. Thank goodness the babies I wintersowed in 2012/2013 made it through! My hollyhocks did not survive summer because they were weevil infested along with rust. I hope they survive this time around.

I lost some perennials that I planted last year - Red Gaillardia which I LOVE, and a rudbeckia.
I hope I can find them locally and replace.
The Rosemarys didn't make it, but that was expected.
Thyme and Sage made it. I had a Russian sage in a pot, which I was just about to toss, when I noticed signs of life, and now it is doing great.
I also had a butterfly bush in a pot, which I think is gone.

Not sure yet, but it looks like my blue Salvia perennials are not coming back. :(
I've got seeds, but it's sad to lose perennials, now shall have to wait at least a year until they reach their glory.
