has my ceanothus died?

worcestershire, United Kingdom Gb

My ceanothus usually flowers late april but this year it hasnt, it hasnt even got any leaves yet! Has it died or is it because of the changing seasons? (Its about 6 years old)

On plant Ceanothus arboreus



Jackie Mine has gone same way its about 4yrs bought as acuttign at th eQuarry Garden in Fife Scotland.

I think it must be to do with this very changeable weather.

Try the scratch test before you give up on it. Use a knife and scratch away a small area of bark - about half-an-inch, and see if the wood underneath is green. If it is brown and also the twigs on the end of the branches are brittle, then I am afraid that it has died.
