Warm winters can often be harder on perennials then colder weather. Temperature fluctuations in winter can often do damage to plants that do not go into a dormancy and stay there.
Lack of snow can also leave plants unprotected.

Plants emerge at different times and will generally take off growth when soil temperatures warm sufficiently .
