From what I've read here from other people, green means they have been fertilized and will set seed. Brown probably means the flower is aging (they don't last forever) or, if it was fertilized, it's now growing the seeds. I don't know if you should dead-head them or not. Do you want seeds?

yep. mrs. bradley has it. they go green first, then shrivel and brown and crisp up. i usually try to cut mine when the green gets really deep.
