Taking Care of Flowers

Anonymous added on December 6, 2016 | Answered

I have several kinds of flowers, from roses, azaleas, ruellias and some I don't know their names. I bought all perennials this year and I'd love for them to come back so I don't have to keep wasting money every summer. Do I need to cut them down? Or prune? I've read a ton of sites and none of them are helping me. I live in Mena, Arkansas. It rarely snow here and never below zero. it might get in the 20's but not usually. Please help! Thanks, Leah

Most perennials will need little care or attention except deadheading or trimming back as they go dormant for winter.
You can trim away any spent flowers. Most perennials will die down naturally or you can cut down when they are done flowering.

I am listing several links for you that have more information.
