Trachelspermum dying back

Hi all, one of my Traccys, planted last autumn, is looking unhealthy and dying back at the tips. Would I be wise to trim off all the affected vegetation, and does anybody have any idea what might be causing it?

    Is it the jasminoides one @WillDB ?
    They aren't fully hardy, so I'd guess it's just weather damage. It looks like it, and if so, you would trim that back, assuming weather conditions and temps are favourable.  

    I don't grow them though - they'd never survive here. Someone else will have more accurate advice  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    I cut back to healthy growth. There wasn't much of it left by the time I was done lol
