This is my first year growing these beautiful plants. My question is, in the fall, do I cut them down or just leave them as they are? Thanks.

While it's not a must, you can cut them back to about 6 inches from the ground, if desired.
I wait until spring to cut mine down, as they add some winter interest to the garden.
