do you cut down verbascum when finished flowering

On plant Verbascum



If you want it to set seed then, no, you don't. If you don't want seedlings everywhere, then, yes, you do.
The ones I have are biennial, if yours are the same, the plant will die off, whichever you do.
Some are supposed to be perennials (sorry I don't know which they are) so should carry on another year or two.
