Flower Maintenance

Your perennials (a plant that will regrow in Spring) will require cutting down to soil level at the end of their growing season. Generally this is will be late winter. You can choose to cut the plant back when it is finished or you may choose to leave the foliage if the plant has interesting seed heads that can be enjoyed by the birds. Then you would cut the plant back in late Winter.
