Should you deadhead hyacinths?

Last sign of blue was about a week ago. Should I take the tops off?

Hyacinths bloom in the spring. Hybiscus bloom all summer long usually. Plant or shrub? Where do you live? Betsy

Yes, definitely. Leave the foliage alone until it turns brown. That will help the bulb develop for next year.

Unless you want seeds for some reason, yes, do deadhead now. It'll help the bulb for next season. If you do want seeds, then don't deadhead, but figure that bulb will need several years of recovery before blooming well again.
