How do I truly know if certain roses died over the winter?

Hello,

Some of my old tea roses are growing leaves - a good indicator that they are still alive.

Others have no growth, but do seem to have a slight bit of green and moisture and springiness when I trim the canes.

How do I truly know if certain roses died over the winter, and so need to be replaced, or are simply still dormant? How long do I wait in hope?

Where are you? My roses have already done their first showing and then were attacked by rust. The subsequent sulphur bath killed most of the foliage and now the second showing is starting.

Typically if the canes are green and not hollow they're fine.
