      Hello,

      These plant tend to flower prolifically in early summer and then intermittently - often into autumn if they are deadheaded regularly. The key is to remove each faded flowerhead to the base of the stalk where it branches off the main spike. When all the flowers on the spike have finished flowering, remove the whole stem back to the base.
