Thanks for the compliment. I should have mentioned that cutting back in the Fall prevents accidentally trimming back new growth. I used to do it in the Spring and by the time I got to the end, there were to much growth that I had to cut around.

Foliage left in the Fall does not serve plants in any way except harbor bugs.

I wonder who came up with the idea of cutting in the spring. I know someone who uses a weed eater in the Fall.
