Answer: If you pinch off the the wilting flowers more should be produced. It is normal for the lower flowers to develop seeds while the top of the flowering spike is still producing flower. Just pinch or cut off the lower, older flowers to keep the flower spike blooming. Your plant will probably do better in the ground than in a container but you shouldn't move it while it is in bloom. Moving can stress it and stop the flowering process completely. Wait until this fall to plant it either in the ground or into a larger container.
