Will my convolvulus cneorum plant recover a hard pruning?

United Kingdom Gb

My convolvulus cneorum plant grew quite large & woody & I pruned it back to wood which left no greenery on the plant at all. Will my plant recover or not? It has not shown any signs of growing any foliage so far (6 months later) should I wait until next spring to see if it recovers by then?

If its not grown anything live or green for the last six months, its dead. Remove it and replant.

They do not like being pruned. Srcape a bit of the stem you will soon see if it dead.
