I thought the same. I'm gonna have to rip em out and replace. Sometimes knockouts bloom very late.

I agree. You can try scraping some of the branches a little with your fingernail. If it's green underneath they may bloom, if dry and dead, they're gone for sure.

At this point, it's well past memorial day and I see no signs of life. Time to replace with new ones imo.

This winter killed off a lot of roses---the root stock is alive but the grafted tops are dead.

And the root stock is usually Wild rose stock, which is hardier than the domestic variety, and takes a graft very easily. If it does grow back they will probably not be what you planted.

Like was mentioned before you can scrape the branches with a knife to see where the green tissue is. There is no way of telling from photos how much live tissue they have. If they do have enough to tissue to come back it probably won't be this year.
