Should I cut the dead flowers off my tellima grandiflora?

Hampshire, United Kingdom Gb

It has finished flowering and I wonder if I cut the flowers
off it might flower again.



Hi Bloomsbury, and welcome to GOY :)
I've not known mine to repeat flower after cutting off the flower spikes, so I think it only flowers the once. Lovely leaf shape though, so you can still enjoy it for it's foliage.

If you let it go to seed, you will have plants all over the garden - it is very prolific
