I have a hedge of 5 Catoneaster. 3 of the 5 are full bloom already. The other 2 seem to be stunted. Will they open up on their own once the warm weather stays? Can I help them along anyway? They do not appear to be dead as the branch is still bendy and the buds of the leaves have not dried up.

Hi,

Your plants might be experiencing winter injury. I would just wait and see what happens and maybe give them a little fertilizer if you haven't already and keep them watered if it is dry. It would not be possible for me to predict if they will fully recover as it is dependent on many factors.
