Your plant has been blooming really well. Trimming off the faded flowers will possibly encourage it to bloom again in the fall. You can cut each stem individually, cutting just above a leaf to avoid leaving bare stubs, or you can trim the whole plant off straight across and fairly short. Keep it well watered and it should recover nicely.
