My peonies are finished flowering and I want to know if I can cut them. Is it safe to do so?

Remove spent blossoms but do not trim peonies. They need the leaves to produce energy to give you flowers next year and support the roots. I assume it freezes there. After hard frost, you can trim them back, if desired, and clear away ALL debris throwing in the trash, not a compost pile.
