I have a perennial gloxinia by my front steps. I does very well there but once the leaves begin to die they look awful. can I cut them off and if I do will it affect how the blooms appear later?

Any leaves that begin to decline for whatever reason should be removed. The removal shouldn't affect flower production later.
