Is it too early to cut back my coral bells? The leaves are still green, but are definitely limp. I live in Chicago - Zone 5.
|We usually recommend you wait until frost nips the foliage before cutting it back. If you prune too soon and the weather remains above freezing, your coral bells will produce new stems and foliage, which will die back with the first frost. You'll end up pruning the plants back again. If you wait until after a hard frost, the plant will go dormant and you can safely remove the foliage. Hope this clarifies things for you.|
