Cut back bee balm?

Ohio, United States Us

I planted a "petite wonder" monarda didyma last summer. Should I have cut this back in the fall? If so, is it too late to do so now that it is spring?

On plant Monarda didyma



If it has died down for the winter then cut off the old material. It is an herbaceous perennial. Or do you live somewhere warm and it hasn't died back?
