When the flower is spent, cut the entire flowering stem off, but leave the foliage alone. The leaves will provide energy to the bulb for next year's bloom. After the leaves wither away naturally, you can dig the bulb, cut away the leaf debris, and store the bulbs in a cool, dark area. If you plan to leave the bulbs in the ground all year around, simply cut the brown, dead leaves off at soil level.
