Q.Dead heading a columbine

Zone Erie, Pa 16503 | cheesypoofs43 added on June 13, 2018 | Answered

I have several Columbine plants – and after the flowers fade off and die, I have a Green Pod – Do I take the Pod off for dead heading, or do do I take the pod and stem under it ? thanks

This is a matter of personal preference. The green seed pod will ripen and release many seeds, some of which will germinate the following year. If you want an increase in plants leave the pods to ripen. If not, cut the flower stem to the ground.
