Many people cut them to the ground this time of year. These plants have a hard time surviving the winter so you can expect about a 50/50 chance of them surviving regardless of what you do. However, you can take steps in order to protect them over winter. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/chrysanthemum/wintering-mums.htm

Wait until after the first frost and then cut the plant back to about a couple inches. Apply a fair amount of straw mulch to keep it well protected over winter. You can also choose to leave your sedum plants alone until spring (trimming back the same amount), allowing the foliage to provide the plant with winter protection.
