Should Weigela Be Pruned Back After Turning Brown After Frost

Question From: B. Shetterly - Perryopolis, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: I planted a weigelia this summer called My Monet. Yesterday we had a frost now it is all brown. Should I prune it back or leave it alone ?

A: Bonnie, that shrub is not an evergreen. It looses it's leaves like maple trees or viburnums. Let nature take it's course. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
