Pink equador - impressed first timer

I LOVE THIS PLANT!! So impressed with it Beauty personality and fragrance. I think in doing pretty good with it. Just need a few pointers... Am I supposed to trim off the little leaves that sprout on the bottom trunk? Are those suckers? I've been trimming the large leaves at the bottom to promote height but not sure what to do with the little guys. And how about the spent blooms? Do you trim those too? This first bloom didn't last long. It's amazing how it turns from yellow to pink in one day!!!

It is pretty! It always surprises me to see such large blooms on a relatively small plant.

I just hope I can keep her alive all winter! She seems to love her spoton the deck. Just one problem.... The beetles are choking down on her leaves :( I'm organic so I've been spraying 'jAcks deadbug juice" but it's not really helping. Anyone else have a beetle problem?
