Its the middle of June and this little flowering apricot is just now waking up. I nearly gave up on it. It was pretty much just under one of my benches and only watered accidentally. Moral of the story...never give up. (well almost never)

It's always a good feeling when this happens. I have a crape myrtle that I thought was a goner due to my rookie mistake (that's for another thread though). But just this week I saw it finally pushing new growth.

Glad yours is turning a corner for the better.

always good to see green goods "come back" to life. I purchased a bare root hibiscus hardy to zone 4 for my wife and it took nearly 2 months for it to start sending out new shoots. I was worried for a moment :)
