  • I leave the flowers on to die back, eventually you'll be able to just pull the flower stem out easily. But you can just cut the flower stem as low down as you can, if you don't like the dead flower. Mine have never pollinated to produce seeds. As the pollen is messy I tend to cut off the flower and just leave the white spathe.
