The Q&A Archives: No Blooms From Moonflowers

Question: Every year I plant Heavenly Blue Morning Glory along with your Giant White Moonflower. They germinate and progress on schedule, except that the moonflower plant does not produce any blooms.The morning glory is an outstanding performer and I am extremely pleased with the results, but I only get beautiful foliage from the moonflower. Why doesn't it bloom? I fertilize with Miracle Grow. Is this stopping the flower production? Please advise.

Answer: Oversupplying nitrogen could possibly contribute to excess foliage and reduced flowering. In my experience, though, moonflowers take a long time to come into bloom and also require full sun all day long and a warm location. Lack of sun is the most common reason for them not to bloom.
