White flowers are so lovely, but do they look worse or better than other colours when the flowers turn brown? On one hand, the big contrast between the white and the brown is kind of unapologetic. I like that. On the other, maybe the gone- over flowers blend in better on lilac and pink buddleias and other plants? In any case, I'm dead heading the brown flowers I can reach, in order to encourage more flowers, and deliberately Not Worrying about the ones I can't get to.
