Because Stella d'Oro may bloom for an extended period, it can be helpful to remove spent blossoms and seedheads. The idea is to prevent the plant from expending energy on producing seeds and focus its efforts on more blooms! You can pluck individual flowers as they finish which will prevent seedheads, or wait to cut the entire spent stem down at the crown. Remove the seedhead or cut the entire stem down. Good luck!
