If you cut the spent blossoms plus some of the stems away, it's likely your mums will produce additional blooms. Cut the stems back to a lower branching stem, preferably one with flower buds already forming. I usually follow the stem down to where it forms a "V" and cut away the top with the spent flowers. The smaller stems that form the "V" will grow longer and produce new (slightly smaller) flowers. Enjoy!
