This plant is beautiful. I have a question. I have several of them newly planted in my front yard. They bloomed daily for about 4 weeks and now they do not bloom at all. Can I expect more blooms soon or do I have to wait for next spring?

My Iceplant blooms for about 4 weeks also, but that is it.

Yes, same here. Blooms at the beginning of Spring like crazy and now, just one or two blooms. I'm wondering if I should cut back a little and fertilize to encourage new blooms for summer. I have it planted along the sidewalk strip in front of my house. I hardly water at all. The winter rain was all it really needed.
