: Can I prune my oriental poppy back now that it has bloomed? If so, how much can I cut it back?
Just cut the bloom stalk as close to the base as you'd like. Or, you could leave the seed pod as it's rather interesting to some folks. The leaves will probably wither away and disappear. They'll be back next year. :-) Take a look here.
