Answer: Spring weather can be so hard on plants! Luckily, in most cases they do recover from this kind of damage. Be very patient and allow them time to build the strength to refoliate. Leave the damaged parts on the plants for now as they provide a bit of protection for the growth that remains. Once the freezing weather is truly over, you may find that in addition to foliage damage, some of the most tender growing tips are also damaged. If the damage is more severe, you may find dead branch tips that eventually turn brittle, off color gray or brown. The dead wood will have no green inside the bark. These can be trimmed off as well. But, be very patient in waiting for the new growth to come through. Unfortunately, all you can really do is wait and see.
