These easy to maintain plants do not need deadheading, however, removing old flowers can be done if you would like. 

An updated look for the species, Meteor Shower has a denser, more vigorous growth habit which equates to more manageable and attractive plants as a flowering thriller in containers and massed in the landscape. And since the plants set little seed, it won’t become invasive like most Verbenas of this type. Heat and drought tolerance and deer resistance sweeten its appeal.
