Zone 5. Fall blooming perennials ( NWAster and sunflowers) completely flattened and bent over by 24 hour very heavy snow storm. Do I leave them as is and cutback as was planning to in the spring? Or do I cut then back now?

You could do either, or nothing at all, whatever you prefer.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

Thanks. I ended up trussing them all up and glad I did as the butterflies still utilizing them. Will leave over winter and cut down when new growth emerges.
