Cutting down perennials for a second crop of flowers

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 20:41

Currently I have a blue amd a nice white with several spikes....

If cut down early when first flowers are beginning to fade, and the same done to second flush a third often occurs in September.  If our summer carries on like this I will be expecting just that.

Kathy dicentras so tend to die down either totally or partially in the summer.  Cutting back would not have made a great difference.  Just mark where your dicentras are though
