Answer: Late frosts are terrible experiences! However, I've found that most plants rebound and replace the lost leaves once they've recovered from the chill. As you've discovered, some rebound more quickly than others. Flower buds are the most sensitive so you may see fewer flowers this spring. You won't need to pull off the dead leaves; they will be pushed off when the new leaves develop. Wait 2-3 weeks and check you plants again. Anything that is obviously dead can be pruned off. Since crepe myrtles bloom on new shoots, they should flower for you later this year. Let's hope the late frosts are over for the season!
