Andromeda Plants

Mountain Fire Andromeda

Anonymous added on August 9, 2016 | Answered

I have had a Mountain Fire Andromeda for a few years now and would like to know if I can or should cut off the once white flower balls which are now brown and really take away from this beautiful bush. They don't seem to just fall off on their own. If I can, about how far down the branch should I go? Thanks very much for your help!

Yes, you can cut off the flowers after they have faded. You can cut the entire raceme (the portion of the branch where the flowers were) but don't cut off the part with the leaves.
