I have a balloon flower plant, the variety I have is a compact low growing type. It bloomed beautifully, but now
has stopped. Do I deadhead the blooms? It looks like it has new buds on it , but they are not blooming?

Look carefully, as you may find that you are seeing seed pods rather than new buds. To deadhead, trim off individual blooms as they fade or, when all blooms have faded, trim their stems off the plant, cutting just above a leaf.
