Your azaleas and crepe myrtle may need more time to recover from the frost attack. If you can cut or scrape a section of lower branch and see a thin layer of green and moisture, then they are not dead. To be on the safe side, take samples of your crape myrtle and azaleas to your local cooperative extension to have them sent for diagnosis.
