Nemesia, bracychome, calibrachoa in planter boxes.

I have 2 planter boxes with these plants in them(Nemesia, Bracychome, Calebranchoa). All are perennials. Seems they have dried out either from not enough watering or this is not the season for them to bloom. How do i know if they are dead or just need to be cut back and wait until growing season again? Or should i just replace them? thank you Violet

Calibrachoa in Zone 7 is an annual.

mine grew back from last year to this summer

Really? Because my last years callibranchoa grew back and re bloomed this year. Maybe i have my zones wrong and also i was told it was a perennial.

Sometimes winters are not as severe. Gerber Daisies are not hardy in Charlotte but one spring they came back, but not again. Verbena if it doesn't get enough moisture will not survive. I have no clue about the other two but Calebranchoa is basically a CA plant. Check the zones.
