Liatris Spicata after Storm With High Winds
Just moved into a beautifully renovated 1930s home with an amazing garden in front and landscaping all around. However, I am extremely new to gardening. Shortly after moving in we had a storm in the area that surprised everyone with nearly 80 mile per hour winds. While what appears to me to be 3 to 4 foot Latris Spicata is still in good shape after the storm, some stems have been blown over. I am not sure if I should cut those stems back as they are part of the other upright and still thriving plants or stake them. What are my options?
