Angela I protected mine with fleece last year as it was new but am unsure as to whether I need to do that this year ,do you protect yours every year ?

Amy, we have never protected them, we leave all the foliage on, then cut it down in the Spring......

Angela ,do you mean you cut it right down to the base in the spring ?

Not the base....usually about 8...12 inches, as it was a new plant, we didn't this year.....but will next year!othwise they get too leggy!!
