Hi Willowkitten, I don't live far from you, I'm in Washington. I have several varieties of hardy fushia, at this time of year all they are just brown sticks. As a previous poster suggested do a gentle scrape test. I've cut my Fushias back this week to a height of about 4 inches. Some folk suggest waiting until you see buds but I don't do that. Give your fushia a good while before you pronounce it dead. I'll happily set some cuttings away for you in the summer if you want more plants.
