When the flowers fall off and leave their stems, do I leave them or should I cut them off to allow new growth?

Just leave them. There isn’t really a reason to cut them off and it would probably do more bad then cut if anything because you have an exposed end. They will just die off. Happy planting!😁
I agree with @PlantyPlanter - at the start of the growing season this year, I cut mine back because we had such a rough winter. They've bounced right back!
