The Q&A Archives: Do all bougainvillea bloom?

Question: I planted three small bougainvillea plants in my flower beds last May. The branches have grew to be about 5ft tall, never produced flowers, then they died in the winter. I cut them back and they have begun to grow again. But still no flowers, just blade sized thorns to slice your fingers. Is there something I can do to help it bloom?
