This is a link to a table listing many types of perennials, including geum. It explains when, and how to dead head.

Hi Donna
I dead head my Geum by just nipping out the flower bud and it's little stem where it meets the main part of the stem.
I use a little pair of sharp scissors, alternatively you can use your thumb and forefinger. Dead head regularly to encourage the other blooms. Mines have been flowering since May!
Hope this helps. Angie
