Winter's effects on plants

This is one of four butterfly iris plants in my yard, and it's not hard to see what a toll the winter freezes took on my beauties. All four are really struggling. I wonder if I should go and cut out all those brown leaves and make room for them to put out new growth and flowers.

My one and only sago palm had some damage, too, but since it's planted under the big trees in back, it didn't freeze quite so badly. It's coming back just fine.

Poor thing!

The day lilies weren't affected at all! They're just as beautiful this spring as they've ever been!
