Oklahoma rain too too much this year! Been in the ground 4 months. I love the plant but it is fading fast due to too much water!!
Will it come back next year?

When the blooms are spent, it's best to cut it back to avoid it going to seed. If the plant is showing stress from relentless rain, then it is a good idea to trim it back. I would trim it to 2-3 inches above the soil surface instead of all the way to the ground. If Oklahoma begins to dry out, the plant might put on growth and make a reappearance before fall.
