Do I need to cut back my Russian Sage after the first frost?

Thank you for your continued help.

Russian Sage is typically pruned back in the spring. I'd leave the shrub alone for the winter. There will be some winter die back but the stems and branches will offer some insulation to the center of the plant. In the spring you can prune it back to remove the winter kill and to encourage healthy new growth. Enjoy your landscape!
