Planted Carolina jasmine last spring, and our pergola was covered with the vines. Over the winter it died except for a few leaves at the base. Should the plant be dug up and replaced, or will it return?

Depending on how cold it got during the winter, the plant may still grow back-either the roots or part of the stem are likely still alive. The best thing to do is wait until late spring or summer to see if it starts growing back. If not, you can replace it.
