Will hopseed (Dodonaea viscosa) grow green again, or do all of the dead shoots have to be cut away? If so, it will lose the pyramid shape it has acquired.

Hopseed bush is hardy to 15 degrees. It should be showing new growth by now. You can prune back the dead material to the point where new growth/buds is showing. It should recover fairly quickly. Good luck!
