I have a ceanothus whose leaves have turned dark brown after the recent spell of heavy snow and very low temperatures we've had in Wales (and Britain) in December (-9 definitely some nights - low for this part of the world and up to about 30cm of snow which was there for at least a week). The leaves are elastic still when you touch them so not dead yet. Are they likely to go back to their normal colour or are they likely to die? I am not sure if pruning is an option because it is all the leaves of the plant that are affected and not just some, so I would have to remove pretty much the whole thing! Shall I wait till spring and see what happens? It does look sad and fairly ugly at the moment and that's why I'm tempted to pull the whole thing out. (It lost a lot of leaves in later summer too so does not look as dense as previously.) My neighbours plant also has similar damage only the leaves there are a much lighter brown. Thanks in advance for any help.
