The Q&A Archives: Snow Dwarf Matricaria

Question: I have 2 very nice plants of white star matricaria.
They have bloomed very nicely but now the flowers are starting to turn brown, should I cut the heads off?
The clusters of flowers are many and I am not sure how far or close I need to cut them if I am to dead head the flowers.

Answer: You can deadhead by treating the plants like you would chrysanthemums. Since the stems are branched with many clusters of flowers, cut the entire stem down when the flowers are spent. Hope this helps you decide how far down to cut!
