Star Jasmine severe winter damage - cut them way back?

Posted by wynswrld98 z7 WA (My Page) on

I have several Star Jasmine plants which usually aren't completely happy after the winter (some brown leaves) but they bounce back but this year we had a very severe winter and they look awful, some of the entire plants are all brown leaves, some plants dropped their leaves completely.

Does anyone know if I should cut them back to try and revitalize them? If so, how much? 25%? What would be the best time to do so? Right away?

It's still early - hold off until mid-May to cut the dead branches off. The new leaves will push the dead leaves off. Many times, given a little time, they will come back just fine. After mid-May, cut off any limbs that are still brown.
