The Q&A Archives: no blooms

Question: I purchased a passion flower vine in the spring. It has grown very big, healthy looking but not one bloom or flower. Whats the problem? I honestly don't know what category it falls under.

Answer: Passiflora, the Passion Flower Vine, climbs by tendrils to 20 or 30 feet. The plant likes full sunshine and regular watering during the growing season. It's a vigorous growing plant and needs to be pruned back during the growing season to encourage new stems, which should produce flowers. Pruning every year will also keep it from getting tangled and unruly. Sunshine is the key to flowering. Best wishes with your passion flower vine.
