The newly emerged growth on several of my perennials has been destroyed by a late spring freeze. Will the perennials come back?
Newly emerged perennial growth is susceptible to damage from freezing temperatures. While freezing temperatures may have damaged or destroyed the new growth, the roots and crowns of healthy, well-established perennials should still be alive. The damaged perennials should send up a second flush of growth in a few weeks. Good care (for example, watering weekly during dry weather) this spring and summer should help the perennials recover.
