Ligularia question

tami58June 24, 2008

This is the first time I have ever had a ligularia & I love them! I have several "Little Rockets". Now that they are finishing up their bloom, I am wondering if I let the spike alone or trim it back? I certainly don't want to do anything that will deter blooming next year. Thanks in advance.

I dont think it will effect blooming for the following year. I have read both to cut it and not to. I have ligularia, and I never cut the stalk, so I really dont know the outcome.
