I had my plumbago covered but its outer branches froze-i assumed it didn't freeze totally. How far do i prune it back?

Right now you can prune back anything obviously dead. Prune it back to healthy wood. Later this spring, when new growth begins, you can prune off anything that is not growing well or suffered minor damage. The new growth will cover over your pruning cuts in a few weeks. Hope there wasn't too much damage!
