Do I need to cut these down for winter or leave them alone? Thanks Lori

Whatever you want to do for appearance is ok. The foliage and flower spikes will deteriorate over the winter anyway, and new foliage will emerge in the spring. If your flower spikes still have interesting seedheads, why not leave them for a while. I usually cut my Liatris spicata back before winter, mostly because the leaves usually have a touch of powdery mildew and I like to dispose of diseased foliage.
