Calvert County Maryland nandina shrubs winter damage

Many nandina have been hit hard by the cold winter and have suffered winter damage. Be patient and look for new growth. Scratch the branches with your fingernail and look for green tissue. If you see it, the stems are still viable. Otherwise, if brown prune dead plant material back to healthy tissue. The plant usually recovers fast once the temperatures warm.
