: I live in southeastern Wisconsin (Zone 5), and my grape hyacinths are done blooming and looking very shabby. The leaves are turning brown and have what look like seed pods on the end of them. Can I mow them down or do I have to leave them all summer? Thanks
Yup, those are seeds. If you like, pull any yellowed or brown leaves. It's best to leave the green ones until they yellow as the leaves make food for the bulbs for next years blooms.
