The Black Eye Susan (Thumbergia) has died, but I will not remove it until most of the frost has passed. This is because the dead vines are providing some protection for the tender Fuchsia which is planted in the same pot. This is also one reason that perennials are best left with their dead stems and leaves until the spring. It might only be a slight protection from the frost, but it makes a big difference in the regrowth in the spring.
