i cut back my erysimum. will it still come back this year

On plant Erysimum bicolor



Can you see any new growth at the base? If you can't, I'm afraid you've cut it too far back for it to survive. I only dead-head mine, and cut them back a little bit, not drastically. They're short-lived plants, and it's better to take cuttings rather than try to regenerate an old plant.
