I bought an Iris Baby Blue earlier this year. I planted it in my rockery and it flowered well. All flowers are now gone. Do I de-head them? The instructions that came with it said remove faded flower stems to prevent seed formation. Does this mean I have to remove the bulbous bit below the flower head too?

On plant Iris



yes the whole thing xx .
