My plant flowered and really kept flowering this year. There are still some dead blossoms. do I just leave it or prune it for the winter? I live in PA. Temperature is going down to 30 tonight.

When to prune depends on the plant. Can you let us know what the plant is and we can give some pruning advice specific to the plant?
Regardless of the kind of plant, however, you can remove spent blooms at any time.
Prune off all the dead blossoms. Then after the cold temps have hit, you can do some thinning pruning to keep snows from smashing the plant down badly. Wait until spring to do any further pruning to see what all comes back to life and what is truly dead.
