Get rid of that little red stem. I suspect that you will want to shorten that large left branch considerably, but let it grow for a while.

I believe Jim was refering to the lowest branch (sucker), on the right, shooting out from the inside of the curve. Leave everything else on. I wouldn't even trim until next year. It looks like it has been through a lot recently.

I plan on planting a couple of these in the ground in my garden this spring.

Mine has som flowers set for late winter, although that side is just sacrifice growth at this point, I couldn't bring myself to remove the flower buds.
