Herbaceous Perennials
In general, three annual operations are necessary. In late spring the taller growing plants will need supporting with pea sticks (or similar). During the flowering period all will benefit from the regular removal of spent blooms. Most will need to be cut down to ground level during the late winter.

Exceptions to this latter dictum are those plants that do not naturally undergo winter dormancy. For example, Acanthus is cut down in late summer when it will rapidly produce new foliage that will then survive over winter, Libertia which is evergreen, simply needs its spent flower stalks removing in late summer.
