Can I Cut Back My Hardy Primrose Foliage?
My primrose is done blooming and I would like to cut back the foliage to make room for the plants around it.

If you cut back green foliage, it can harm the plant's ability to build energy for surviving the winter and blooming next year. You should only cut back yellow leaves, as these are dead and no longer help the plant build energy.
