My fire spinner bloomed profusely in late spring. It has not bloomed at all this summer. What is the problem? It is supposed to bloom all summer.

Our delospermas don't bloom unless they get very strong sunlight, and adequate water.

Welcome Bunnyu, I've heard that Fire Spinner can be a very sporadic bloomer during the summer. I'd be sure to keep it in full sun.

Delosperma is a thread (in our Perennials forum) you might find helpful bunnyu. Ice Plant (Delosperma Fire Spinner™) is mentioned quite a bit.
