|I planted two Sage plants this year and they have become total monsters. I love em! I am in San Francisco and have no idea how to treat them over the Winter. Do I cut them back?

|The first pic looks like a salvia guaranitica, the second one is salvia leucantha / Mexican Bush Sage...both of these I cut to the ground in Spring.
edited to add that the reason for cutting back in Spring is that the salvias having hollow stems can fill with water in the Winter rains and lead to rot....
I could be wrong...
