When/how to cut back Columbine?
I have a whole bunch of columbine growing in partial shade along the side of the house and it's way past blooming with seed pods all over it. What exactly do I do with it now so it's not so...uh...unsightly? My tendency with perennials since I know next to nothing about them is to whack them back to the ground level and call it good. I'd kind of like to know if this is such a good thing to do as I'm trying to, you know, learn something about perennials now ;o)
