The Q&A Archives: Cutting Back Perennials

Question: I have a new perennial garden that I started last fall that includes echinacea, Russian sage, black-eyed Susans, daises, and aster. Should I cut back the dead flowers? How far back? Should I have done this in the fall? I also have some ornamental grasses. Do these also need to be trimmed back?

Answer: good year round. good year round.
