Answer: Deadheading, or removing the spent flowers as soon as they occur, will help the plant bloom longer during each flush of bloom. It also makes the plant look tidier. Once the flush is over, trimming the plant back hard can encourage another repeat flush of bloom in late summer. Keeping the plant fed and watered during the heat of the summer also helps it to perform better. I would not expect it to bloom continously, however.
