Spent Black-Eyed Susan flowers?

I started a bunch of Black-Eyed Susans from seed indoors last year and then planted them outside. They were wildly successful, but now that spring is approaching, do I need to clear out all the dead flowers and plant stalks? Do they come back from a root system or from the seeds from the plant heads that (ostensibly) fell during the fall/winter?
Thanks.

They will come back from the tuberous roots as well as start anew from the fallen seeds. I just cut off the dead tops, whenever I get tired of looking at them.

Hope this helps.

That did help, thanks.
Is it the same for Echinacea (Purple Coneflower)?
