Should I pulled up the spent portulaca for winter or just cut it to ground level?
My portulaca are done for the year. I dont know if I should just cut them down to ground level or pull them up. I realize they will not grow back but I would like for the plants natural seeding to grow again next year.

Either will be fine, but I would tend to lean towards leaving them in ground. They will break down and become part of the soil over winter.
