non-blooming osteospurmum

I have several of these plants in containers, a couple of different varieties. They bloomed nicely initially, but now have just quit. I seem to recall an issue with them in regards to stalling of their blooms but I thought the newer hybrids were improved. They are planted in a hot and sunny position. I have a short season here so definately want an annual that gives me a full season of bloom. Any suggestions to get these guys to bloom? Thanks, Debbie.

Osteo's are a cool season crop, and generally stop blooming in the heat of summer. Although the newer genetics are bred for heat tolerance, these probably aren't the best choice for your "full season of bloom".

I gave up on trying to grow Osteo's for the same reason goblugal described--they stop blooming in the heat of summer, but they sure are pretty in the spring.
