Cut Red Hot Pokers back for winter?
We have mostly herbaceous plants and are preparing for the annual pre-winter cut-back of our garden. Something new we added this summer is a patch of Red Hot Poker (Kniphofias) surrounded by Sedum Angelina. I know the Sedum are not meant to be cut back, but what about the Kniphofias? Are they like Daylillies, where they can be cut back (to maybe 1" off the ground) and still come back fully in spring? I've seen some reference to tying them up and leaving the foliage on all winter but the place I have them would not be conducive to doing this.
