Wisteria Macrobotrys Not Showing Any Leaves After Hard Winter

Question From: Hawthorne, New York, United States
Q: my wisteria Macrobotrys' is not showing any leaves and it is the end of April, is something wrong?

A: Matilda. Your Wisteria may have suffered winter kill. Shrubs are late budding out this year. Be patient. If it shows no sign of life you may need to cut it back hard and see if regenerates growth from the base. If not it may have died and will need to be replaced. Best Nancy
