Answer: Your Osteospermum is naturally a lower growing, spreading and trailing plant, so it may be showing its natural form. It is also capable of thriving in a xeric type of environment, so it is possible you are overwatering it, particularly since it is in partial shade and therefore needs even less water. This plant appreciates a well drained soil, so be careful not to keep it soggy. Pinching the old blooms should help, as could using a blossom booster type fertilizer (with a higher middle number) according to the label instructions. Be careful not to overfertilize with nitrogen as this can cause excess foliar growth and fewer flowers. Good luck with your plant!
