Euchrypia (sp?) - Knowledgebase Question

I have a 6 ft tall Euchrypia that froze partially last winter. It is coming back on the bottom half of the bush. Should I prune off the top portion which appears very dead?

Eucryphia, or Leatherwood, often suffers winter damage so pruning out the dead parts will not only make it look nicer but will encourage healthy new growth. I'd prune it back now. Enjoy your garden!
