Nancy,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

I'd wait to see the new growth start to emerge and then cut out everything that is dead or dying back. The plant should recover and be fine.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
