Should I cut the flowers off of my canna lily when they start to dry up and look bad?

It won't hurt your Cannas at all to remove the spent flowers and stalks. Try making a clean cut just below the tops of the foliage, but don't cut the foliage down. Removing the spent flowering stalk will divert the plant's energy into maintaining the foliage, and your plants will look much neater!
