How do you prune a madagascar jasmine whose leaves have died off from the frost?

Stephanotis can be damaged at temperatures below 40F so the severity of the freeze will determine whether or not your plant will recover. Prune away anything obviously dead and prune back anything else that appears to have some green tissue. If you end up pruning down to soil level, the roots may have survived and may send up healthy new sprouts as the weather warms. Hope so!
