I planted two walking sticks last fall and they started to bud out this spring and we got frost. One plant has a few leaves higher up and one has leaves only on the stick. I was wondering if these plants will survive. We had a late spring this year in Minnesota. Thanks for any help.

Hi...
Walking Stick grows well in zones 4-8, but I'm not sure where Rochester is located.

However, I suspect the woody part of the shrub is fine even if the leaf buds froze. The plant is mainly grown for its gnarly branching habit, and as long as the trunk below the grafted portion of the plant doesn't begin to sprout, you should be okay.

Thanks for writing.
