Answer by texter
Not again this year. Did the ground get too dry during our recent hot spell? Snails or slugs chewing it up? Each year a plant sends out hormones to reproduce. That is the nature of the beast. If it succeeds it sets seeds and rests for another year. If it sends out flowers and something halts it from setting seeds it generally rests for another year. Some plants will rebloom if they are dead headed. Most wont. I’m sorry I just don’t have all the information I need to go any further than this. If your plant survives to next year it will re-bloom on a new stalk.
