You can cut back the flower stem after flowering in the autumn but it is good to leave the old leaves on as they turn brown an this provides the roots with nutrients during the winter. You can remove this in the spring as the new growth starts to appear.

- We ship all marginal water plants bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
