How do you know a plant is dead?

When pruning trees and vines back , as in the case of my Crape Myrtles, I see no green, no buds, no life, nothing. Is is really dead? How long should I wait before I dig it up and start again?

    My husband says to wait, and “its gardening take your time”.

    Well… I thought my gorgeous purple clematis was a goner last year, it died so early on… but ALAS! Resurrection! and right around Easter, if you can believe it. She is back, and I am being oh so attentive and caring. There are others, though, that I’m not sure about. Wait and hope sounds like a good strategy, we haven’t had a real warm spell yet….
