Polemonium caeruleum blue pearl

hi does anyone have any experience with polemonium caeruleum? I bought this as a tiny plant and it has been superbe. The bees love it and even though every flower is over they continue to try really hard to get something from it! 

O if I cut out the faded flower spikes is it likely to re flower, and is it worth letting a few heads go to seed to try to get for next year?

    It may well reflower if you dead head.
    It is a good self seeder, although children may not be same as the parent.
    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.

  • thanks punk doc I’ll have a trim later after the sun has moved off the terrace. The flowers have been stunning so even if I get a few more I’m sure both the bees and I will be happy.
