Care For Russian Sage In The Fall
The Russian Sage was newly planted in mid June - Washington DC area very hot and wet summer. They sprawled instead of growing vertical and bushy. So now it is Nov 5 and they have lost a good amount of their foliage and are sprawled and very stringy. I am afraid of cutting them and killing them. What should I do. Thanks Kevin

The best thing to do at this point is to just wait. They will want that old growth left on until Spring, when it will be suitable to cut it.
