Salvia amistad

Having taken all the advice I was given on here last autumn, I’m pleased to say all my salvia amistads that I brought  into the garage have made it through the winter, including cuttings that were only 2” high.  However, I don’t know what to do next! I’ve cut off the dead flower stalks, but they are shooting leaves all the way up 4 ft stems.  Do they need cutting well back to keep them a good shape and height? Five ft tall is quite high enough for them to grow as they live in pots.  Thanks

    Mine die back with the frosts and new growth appears from below ground quite late in the Spring - usually late May. Then the slugs eat them...
    I'd cut the stem right back to the ground and wait for new shoots to appear.
