I trimmed it in April. Do leave it in the pot and put plastic pot in ground or do I take it out of the put it directly and plant it in the ground. Don’t laugh.

If you are bringing it back inside in the fall to try to initiate the colored bracts, you can leave it in the container all summer on the porch and keep it watered and fertilized. If you don't experience freeing weather during the winter you can dig a hole twice the size of the rootball and place it in the hole without the plastic.
