Should Baptisma Pods Be Removed After Blooming

Question From: L. Inman - Flint, Michigan, United States
Q: Can you tell me anything about Baptisma? Should I remove the pods after blooming?

A: Those pods on the Baptisia are filled with seeds. Some folks consider them decorative and leave them on, Others cut them off when they begin to form so the plant does not spend its energy growing seed. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
