gillenia trifoliata has finished flowering for summur does it need to be pruned



Not really. As a perennial, it will die back naturally later when it can be cut back to a few inches of the base. Leaving the stems and more importantly the leaves on now means that it can continue to manufacture sugars that it can send down to the roots to be stored as starch through the winter. Cutting it back now would reduce this resource for next year making it less vigorous with less flowers.
