when deadheading fushia do you pick just the old flower, Or the flower and the small stem it growes on?

When you deadhead, make sure to take the entire flower including the green bulge at the base of it below the petals. On fuschia it is probably easiest to use a scissors or fine pruner and snip somewhere along that little stem. If you take most of the little stem it will look tidier when you are done. I hope this helps.
