Thrift Plant deadheading

Zone 64016 | Anonymous added on May 24, 2019 | Answered

I just read the article by Susan on your website about the thrift plant. I just bought some and now I need to deadhead the blooms. Do I deadhead the flowers up at the top of the stem just under the flower or at the bottom of the stem near the ground? Thx

The proper method will be removing the flower, and then the stem as it dies, but cutting all the way down all at once will not hurt anything. In fact, it will save the plant some energy in the long run.
