I have some African Iris and some Aztec grass that has been burned by a freeze. When should I prune them back?

Leave the damaged foliage on until spring. It can offer the remaining foliage some protection from future cold snaps. When danger of freeze is past, cut away the damaged tissues.

Thanks for the question!
