Salvia pruning

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

Did I read a post here that said "NOT to prune" for winter?
Its getting time to clean the garden and I dont want to loose this fantastic plant by pruning it back.

The usual advice I've heard is not to prune going into winter because they have hollow stems, so moisture will get in and cause them to rot.

Thanks Ecrane for jogging my memory. I knew I heard it from someone and your reason was just what I thought.
The plant care always has deadhead and trim plant to half after first blooms.
I would hate to loos it.
