Winter Burn?

Posted by littlemissy (My Page) on

We have a Golden Euonymus hedge in front of our house. Our area just went through a huge snow storm (not typical for this area) and had 19 inches of snow. Usually the hedge is bright, vibrant green and now it is brown and the leaves look like they are dying. Do we rip it out or just prune it? Could this be damage from the heavy snow? Thanks for the feedback!

Probably not snow damage, but quite possibly freeze damage from the extremely cold temps we got right before the snow. So long as it's just the leaves that are damaged, and not the wood, leave it alone.

Wait to see where most new growth comes from next spring or summer and then prune out trashy parts, above the new sprouts.
