This is the first year that I have had a garden and so need some help. I have a few columbine and scabiosa plants that are (perennials) does that mean that I just let them die down this winter? I don't want to lose them. Thanks any help with saving plants.

columbime hybrid;
spring to early summer bloom, full sun to part shade, tolerates heat and cold, columbines may be short lived, they generally live 2-4 years. plants self-sow developing new plants.divide clumps in spring.
scabiosa;or pincushion flower;
summer bloom, full sun to part shade,plants are sensitive to high temperatures, they also will not tolerate wet soils. plants form good sized clumps in 1-2 years. divide in spring if plants become overcrowed.propagate by division in spring or sow seed out doors in fall
hope this helps ya [Wink] sibyl
