Will my Crape Myrtle Survive?

shelia__greenthumb(6)April 13, 2012

My Crape Myrtle leaves were zapped by this weeks' frost.

Will my crape myrtle get new leaves? Should I prune the

shrub back? Thank you for any advice.

give them a month to see what happens..

then post a pic.. so we might come to some conclusions for you ...

you can always cut off dead stuff in summer.. but if you go cutting off not dead stuff now.. not knowing if it is dead or alive.. well .. ???
