Is my newly planted Quercus Ilex dying?

Or it could be dead - container grown evergreen trees are very difficult to overwinter succesfully.   If their root balls freeze for an extended period the roots die, but this only becomes apparent when they try to grow in the following spring and realise they don't have the roots to support their leaves, which all brown and drop.

If you purchased the tree this year, this is possible.   Especially with Q. ilex, most of which originate in Holland or Italy, both of whom have just had severe winters.

but Alina's advice is sound - water and wait!

Perennials not growing

If they're not growing by now, they're dead!   Difficult to say why - could be winter mortality, or pests, but either way, it's time to buy some replacements.

Echinacea are notoriously fickle as far as being "hardy" is concerned, so if you're looking for longevity, try somerthing else!
