I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
I'd recommend you cut back all dead growth to the point where it joins living wood. This way the plant will be cleaned up and look great when the new growth comes in and rebuilds the plant.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
