Surviving winter

Do these plants have to be cut back after winter? I purchased one last year and even though we had a relatively mild CT winter, the folliage is all brown. Looks dead, but don't want to assume. It had bloomed beautifully last year.
Asked by: LisaG
Encore Azalea should be allowed to flush and bloom in spring then after you can do some shaping if desired. If you trimmed now you might limit your blooms this spring. There are several types of Encores including the Encore Autumn Ruby that will get a winter color ranging from dark purple to bronze and your plant may still have its winter color. If you think you plant is dead you can make a small scratch in the bark and see if it shows green(alive) or brown(dead or dying).
