Salvia Blue Bedders.... cutting down to base

carrie630(z7bNC)March 5, 2008

I am in NC - we are experiencing some pretty mild temps right now, although you never know (and one morning this week it will be 29). My question is about Salvia Blue Bedder (Farinacea)... I left the long stems on the plants, but when can I cut them off? Shall i wait until my last frost date? April 15th? Thanks

Certainly, do not cut before they start to resume growth. It won't hurt to wait until the last frost, either.
