Bougainvillea - Knowledgebase Question

I had a lovely bougainvillea. I pruned it down after this month's freeze. Although I'm getting plenty of green leaves, I'm getting no blossoms. What's the story. Thank you.

Bougainvilleas bloom on about a 6 week cycle. They grow, flower, rest, then grow again. You might try pruning your bougainvillea back again and holding off of fertilizer - too much nitrogen can slow flowering. Hope yours blooms soon!
