|Two summers ago I planted two hydraenga vines on an arbor in my back yard. The lighting suggested partial sun to shade. It does get at least 4 hours of sun from about 9-1p.m. I've never had a flower on it yet! I've fed it. I've pruned it in early spring. It's growing like crazy, the leaves are a awesome green-but no flowers! Help- what do I do? I'm really bummed. Thanks!

|It sounds like you are taking excellent care of your climbing hydrangeas. These plants are shy to bloom and can take several years to become reestablished and finally begin to show off. Maybe this year will be the one, but if not, keep in mind that many reknowned plantsmen have considered it to be the best of all flowering vines and so it should be worth the wait.
