hi ones flowered should i dead head, or leave them alone ?

On plant Pulsatilla vulgaris



If you want to leave them they will develope rather pretty fluffy seed heads. They may self seed if conditions are right. They seem to like crevices, say on a brick surface, to keep the roots moist, I suppose. They are not aggressive self seeders. Its up to you, leave them or clip off the dead flowers.
