I live in Zone 9. My rangoon creeper typically lives a very healthy happy life but this winter we got a few consecutive days of freezing temperatures and now it looks like a skeleton.
I don't know how much to cut it back, I see new growth at the base but I would like to know if I can cut the majority of the old gangly limbs without killing it.
I look forward to your reply

I would cut it back hard as soon as threat of frost is past. In my experience, it is impossible to kill a Rangoon Creeper....

Thank you very much. It has always been a hardy plant in my yard. I look forward to its blooms every year.
