Deadheading Alyssum?

Zone 83301 | Anonymous added on May 9, 2018 | Answered

Hi How do you deadhead a bocopa? Pick off the flowers? That would leave a naked stem or do they rebloom on the stem? Should I shorten the stem to 3" or 4". How do you deadhead Alyssum? Thank you for your help.

A Bacopa can be pinched back to form a dense base.

When the flowers of Alyssum fade or the plant becomes leggy, clip back the entire plant to 4 to 5 inches in height.
