Asarina Not Blooming - Knowledgebase Question

Brooklyn, NY
Question by ELIZABETHLO
August 4, 1999
I ordered seeds for asarina bridal veil from Burpee. The plant is doing beautifully, climbing up a trellis in a large container. One problem - no flowers. I've got an eastern exposure on my terrace and I used a container mix I got from a local nusery. It's already August. Is there any hope?

There is hope. This plant is a tropical and really likes as much sun as you can give it. It also takes a long time to reach maturity and begin blooming, so the earlier the start you can give it, the better. With any luck it will begin to bloom soon and should continue until frost. The flowers are so pretty, it's worth the wait!
