cutting flowers off Lambs Ears
So turns out my Lambs Ear IS the variety that blooms - only discovered this a few weeks ago a few weeks ago when the buds started. I want to cut the blooms back before they go to seed, but the stalks are so leggy and floppy, it's going to look really strange I think.
For those of you who cut back your Lambs Ear blooms, how far down to you go? Maybe it's kind of late for me to do it now without cutting it completely to the ground? There are new shoots at the base, but I've decided I don't want this plant where I have it - or at least definitely not so much of it and next year, I want to keep it from blooming as I think it looks better when it's more compact.
Here's how it's looking now:
Any suggestions? You can't quite tell in the picture, but the stalks have flopped off to the back and left side so much that it looks sort of bare in the middle of the plant. I also had to cut some off on the right side because they were covering up my ganzia.
