Black eyed susan

Will my completely dried out black eyed Susan’s recover? They look dead. We were away from our home for 2 weeks due to a death in the family. No one watered my flowers and when I returned, my black eyed Susan’s were completely dried out and look dead. I have watered them and have not seem any changes. Should I throw them away or is there a chance they could come back next year?

If they were in pots the roots may have dried out and perished.
If they were in the ground the roots may have survived. You can trim away the dead material and continue to water on a regular basis.
Time will tell.

Remember a loss in the garden makes new gardening opportunities, this reminder helps me when I lose something in the garden.
