There are delphinium belladonnas and amaryllis belladonnas so I'm not sure which plant you are growing. I'm going to guess it's delphinium. If so you can pinch out the growing tips to create a lower, more bushy plant. You can even cut the entire plant down by about a third without harming it. Hope this answers your question!
