Q.What To Do With Burro’s Tail Flowers Once They’ve Dried Out?

Zone 90004 | Succnewb added on July 12, 2020 | Answered

Hey there, my burro’s tail plant had a wonderful flowering spurt in the late spring for the first time since I’ve owned it. Now that all the blooms have long since dried up I’m wondering if I should trim them to allow further growth, or whether I should just let the plant do its thing. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Either will be fine. It will not harm the plant to leave them, but if you would like to pluck them for aesthetic reasons, then you may do so at any time.
