If frost or freeze has gotten on hosta leaves and turned the leaves white should you cut hosta back to ground? Will it put back out for this summer?

White leaves can't perform photosynthesis, the plant's food manufacturer. Remove non-green parts and lightly fertilize if you didn't earlier in spring. The plant will send up new shoots. It may not bloom as vigorously this year.
