The Q&A Archives: Dead Heading Columbines

Question: What is the best way to deadhead columbines? Should I cut them right below the flower?

Answer: When deadheading columbines, it looks tidiest to cut so that you don't leave bare stem ends sticking up. You may find that it is easiest to remove the entire blooming stem by cutting lower near the base once all of the flowers on it have faded.
