Putting my Endless Summers to Bed

Unfortunately for my Endless Summers, summer in Minnesota isn’t REALLY endless. For some reason, they decided not to bloom this year until October, so the frost we had this week put an end to that. We’ve had a very dry year, but normally I have beautiful blooms in September.

My question:

1. In late fall, we normally wrap the 3 in burlap and fill the area with leaves. I know I will never get that first flush on the old wood because it‘s too cold here. I do get green growth from the very bottom of the old wood. Am I wasting my time covering these plants at all? Will the spring growth appear anyway?
