I  have several Canna which, because of our mild winter , have continued to flower all through.  Would it be better if I cut them back now before the new growth begins or leave them to sort themselves out?
Pete and Jan retired to le Marche, Italy 20 years ago for a quiet,  sunny life.  Gardening here was a challenge, but we now have a wonderful garden, with an eclectric selection of plants,  including many wild  flowers and orchids of which we are found of.

We normally cut them back completely - don't want to deal with battered old foliage when the new growth starts pushing.
