Crape Myrtle

A limb on my bush died. We cut it off to about 6" and a new shoot started. This year the rest of the bush is dead. Do we cut off those limbs and hope for the best next year?

You can cut away any dead growth, as this will not come back. You can wait to see if the plant recovers, but if it is all dead except the shoot, it may be sometime before it recovers.
