Mildew on Coreopsis Grandiflora

Should they just be cut back for fall or torn out? They put on a wonderful show all summer long but now have the mildew. So my question is do they go or stay. Thanks

if you start tearing out everything with mildew.. in fall... you arent going to have much left ... come spring

Ha you always make me smile when I read your comments! Its like what a fool person asks such a dumb question. Haaaa Thanks for the answer. I was hoping I didn't have to tear the plants out. Let me ask another question. Is it time to cut things back in zone 5? I need to clean up things before I can move anything or before I can plant out my summer sown things. Oh lovely summer sowing . Free plants!
