What to do with dead flowers?

Canada Ca

I just planted it about 3 weeks ago and it only has one flowering stem on a small plant.
Do I cut the stem with dying flowers or leave it?
Thanks a lot for your help,

Yes cut the flower heads off but it will be next year when it flowers again. This will however save energy for the plant by removing the finished heads.
