HELP! how to deadhead phlox for rebloom

rebaru(z5 QC)August 30, 2008

i know that phlox paniculata might rebloom with deadheading, and i think i have even had success with that. but now with my fading blooms, i can't remember what to do. i seem to remember that cutting off the flower head is NOT the way to get more blooms, but i don't know exactly what to do. just pull out the individual faded blooms from the flower head? i hope someone can help me soon before i miss my chance! Thanks, rebecca

Cut at the base of the dead flower head.
