Cutting back a little may help - just a couple of inches off the ends of the tallest stems. But what you need to do is fertilize that baby to get it growing again. Then keep it in the warmest, sunniest spot you have for the rest of the summer/fall and it should bloom nicely. But some soluble fertilizer every week or so is needed keep it lush and healthy.

Thank you for your quick reply. I will do the trimming and add some fertilizer. Yes it's probably not as sunny anymore here in Ohio. So I will put it out in the sun and see what happens. Thank you again!
