I have several large sedum that have bloomed and are drying off. When do I cut them back? Now or spring?

Spring is the best time to prune your sedums back. If you prune them back now and then have a warm December, the plants will attempt to grow and any new growth won't be cold hardy. Rather than having to prune twice - once now and again in the spring, just wait until early March to prune them back. Best wishes with your landscape!
