What is the appropriate care for baptisia plant over the winter? Should I cut it down? It is about 4 years old and 3 feet tall.

Baptisia is hardy in the Twin Cities area and doesn't need winter protection. The spent plants can be removed now or in the spring. Many growers wait till spring because the seed pods add interest to winter gardens.
