Cut down flower stems on daylilies once blooms are faded. Daisies will produce more blooms if faded flowers are cut back to the next visible bud. On tall shasta daisies, this may be 6-9 inches below the bloom. Look closely for new growth where a leaf meets the stem. Flower stems may be cut back to basal foliage after blooming is over. The main foliage is still needed to prepare the roots for winter so it should remain intact until it yellows in fall.
