    I grew Diascia barberae this year. It bloomed well in the spring but went completely dormant the entire summer. We had a generally cool, wet summer, so I'm not surprised it didn't die despite being planted in full sun with a southwestern exposure under a pine tree. Just recently we had a shift to much cooler weather and I'm happy to say that the plant started blooming again today! These plants are sold as spring bloomers, but if you can keep it alive over the summer (perhaps in a pot) it should rebloom in the fall.
