Once the snow and ice have slowly made their way down into the creeks, what you're left with of a lavender plant looks, well... quite dead. It has lost all its green and looks dried up like an old Christmas tree. In May, color will start showing in its leaves and once any dried small branches are trimmed away in June after making sure any branch is really dried up, it will look like a bushy plant once again with its new growth.
I pulled mine because I thought that they had died. I planted new ones and I will be more patient next spring
