I just don't know what to loos so beutiful I don't want to cut it off...

Answer: Liliana,

Whether you cut it off or not is up to you. The plant can take being cut back and each time you prune it back you force new shoots to grow making the plant bushier and more compact.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
