Fungi on Indian Hawthorne

If I cut off all the infected parts of the plant there will only be the bare base of the plant (no foliage), will the plant grow back?

Although Indian hawthorn can survive severe pruning, I do not recommend cutting the entire plant to the ground. You can replace the plant entirely, or you may wish to cut the plant back to 6 or 8 inches, wait for new growth to appear, and then eventually remove the rest of the diseased branches.
