    I would wait until they get affected by the cold weather, they are fairly tolerant of much cooler weather.

    You are a little late you cut back 1st of July for sturdier blooms to come in fall, I don't cut mine back until spring
  • Why? Just deadhead when the blooms are spent or the leaves naturally wither.

    Hi Peggy. I cut mine down late fall after they start to die off. I live in WI so sometimes I have to wait until spring.

    Thank you very much. I thought I should cut them back after they bloom and
    start to die.
