You can prune your tree after it finishing blooming. Prune it into the shape and habit you prefer (blossoms can be produced anytime between April and September, so don't prune too soon). If you head it back, you'll be encouraging a shrubby, multistemed habit. If you prune the ends of the branches back, you'll be encouraging a slightly bushier crown. Now's the time to decide how you'd like your tree to look at maturity, and prune accordingly - after it has finished blooming next year.
