Verbascum nigrum 'Dark Mullein'

I picked this up at Annie's a few months ago and it's grown like mad and has bloomed already. Do I cut the flower/seed stalks off to encourage more blooming?

Many thanks!

Cut those off for more blooms or let them go to seed.

That is a very pretty plant.

Never let them seed! Never! Or you will regret bitterly!
