    I would cut off hosta foliage that was damaged by frost and they should recover. The althea's are tough and should also recover. The ideal time to divide ornamental grasses is in early spring just as new growth emerges so go for it.

    Probably also just the right time to cut back any ornamental grasses you are not dividing, Terry.
