Wait to prune plants

The winter is still young and our area will certainly receive more cold weather.  Plants with some cold damage will not be attractive but wait to prune back any damaged tissue.  Many of the perennials still have green leaves and branches toward the ground and all of the other damaged plant material helps protect tender plant parts.

There is still green within this group of pentas. Pruning now will expose tender tissue to the cold and may not allow plants to return next spring.
