I have an asparagus bed, that is now in it's 4th year. Last year after the harsh winter we had had, -18 for about 3 weeks, than cold snap after cold snap, I thought I had lost over 50% of my crowns there was no sign from them, but by August there was signs that all were still there. The spears were very small and spindly and turned to fern almost immediately. But then we did have a cool summer last year. So don't dispair, they may still be there, but just slow in waking up.
