I live in the east Houston area. During the last freeze, my birds look dead. I would like to trim them and see if they grow back but I'm not sure how to do that. How far do you trim? what type of tool should I cut them with? They are completely brown. The stalks are not rotten. Any suggestions?

This cold has damaged many plants this year. I would wait until spring to cut back the plant, as it will help protect the new growth, just in case another freeze occurs. Cut away any brown stems and leaves with a sharp pair of shears. These articles will help you as well:
