WHEN FLOWERS WILT CAN I PLUCK THEM OFF SO NEW ONES WILL COME IN?
Generally, it’s best to snip off wilting flowers so the plant puts energy into growing more flowers. This practice tricks annuals and perennials into thinking it isn’t time to stop flowering and set seed. Keep in mind, you will get different results with some shrubs and trees. There are a few shrubs that will force new flowers when deadheaded. Sundrop Spirea is one of those flowering shrubs. However, most trees and shrubs will produce just one round of flowers.
