No signs of life in campanula, lynchis, or amsonia...

I planted several new perennials last year. I'm starting to see life in many plants around the garden, such as the pachysandra, lamium, and primulas, so it worries me to not see life in these plants as well. I know it's still early, but I don't see anything...

The exact species are campanula glomerata, lynchis 'orange gnome', and amsonia 'halfway to arkansas'. I fear this may be another year where I have killed something...

I can only hope my campanula glomerata kicked the bucket due to cold.... No such luck I'm sure, and I'll have to find some other way to get it under control.

Still not seeing much here either, and I hope I'm wrong that most of the Agastaches, Penstemons, and western Salvias are goners. The shade garden is waking up, but most of that is native to this area so it knows what it's doing. This week should make a lot clear--spring weather for the forseeable future.
