Is my passion flower dead?!

Afternoon all hope you are well.

I'm looking for some help.

Last year I planted a passion flower with the hope of it growing to cover a wall. It grew like mad before stopping when the weather got a bit colder.

I'm trying to figure out if its since died or if they just take a while to start up again in the spring? The ends of some of the stems (sorry, I'm not sure of the correct lingo) - the end away from the roots, have turned very brown and dry, whereas the root end of the same stems still look green and healthy. Does anyone know if this is normal?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

    I don’t grow them but my parents did. That sounds pretty normal to me so don’t panic yet  :)
