Autumn Joy Sedum Turning Yellow - Knowledgebase Question

My Autumn Joy Sedum is yellowing - I presume it's getting ready for winter. I've read several Burpee articles about cutting them back or leaving them for winter interest. I don't think my Sedum will have much interest. The leaves are yellowing. Should I cut them back?

This is a personal preference decision. They will yellow and then turn brown, and some people find them attractive when dusted with snow. It will not harm the plants to cut them back in late fall when they have browned or leave them as is until spring. In spring you should remove the old stems and foliage, if you didn't do it in the fall.
