Moved this plant from another location...it's in full sun and growing on a trellis, but here it is August and there are no signs of any blooms. Any suggestions?

Blooming is promoted by planting the vine in the ground with either trellis or wall support. The roots need lot's of room. Older plants can withstand a night of frost and may loose the leaves, but they will come back every year along with heavy loads of blooms.

My bower vine is huge, about 6 or 7 feet tall, in a big pot, only had three flowers this spring. I live in Houston, Tx and have tried fertilizer and moved it to lots of sun, any suggestions. GC

I have this plant, container grown .... can't seem to get it to bloom anymore. Last time I had flowers was about 4 years ago! I moved it to full sun, but no luck. Even tried feeding it with orchid fertilizer .... still no flowers! Grows fine in the container, just no blooms. It's still a nice looking vine.

This is a very rapid grower for me but produces few blooms. I've trimmed it back several times hoping that would encourage flowering but it has not. Nice foliage and will cover a trellis FAST!
