What to do with ugly flowers

The flowers on my Heuchera Stormy Seas were pretty ugly, looked weedy and were blocking the view of the plants behind them. So I cut them all (3 plants worth) as close to the base as possible and put them in a vase - where I think that they surprisingly look good.


They would probably dry nicely too.

I agree, many look nice in a vase. I have some on my coffee table right now. DH pulled them off with the lawn mower.

RE: What to do with ugly flowers

They do look pretty in a vase. I tend to cut most of mine off for that since I really prefer this as a foliage plant rather than for it's blooms. Very nice Connie May.

They do look good in the vase. I leave mine on so I can get babies. They self seed in the garden if you let them dry in the garden. I grow them for the foliage but leave a couple of stems for the seedlings.

Good save. That's like eating your cake and having it too!
