Deadheading Your Clematis

 clematis seedhead

I’m often asked: “Should I remove the seedheads left from the old flowers?” 

I know that many of you love the cute little fluffy seedheads, so you leave them on your clematis plant(s).  I personally remove my faded and/or spent flowers from my clematis before they have a chance to produce these pretty plumes. The reason is because I grow my clematis for their gorgeous blossoms.  So, it’s your call to snip them off or to keep them on.
