care of plants that were damaged by frost

I have a plant that got frozen and the leaves are damaged, but the inside leaves were not. I wanted to know if I need to trim the damaged leaves or leave them alone. Iris Davis

    Plant tissue that was damaged due to cold will not recover, so you may as well remove it. Either way it will have no effect on the plant's recovery. The degree of damage to the roots is the key to recovery.
