Why did my plant come up in a different location than last year? - Knowledgebase Question

I have passion flower vine that bloomed beautifully last year. I cut it all the way back at the end of fall. This year it came up in a different location, about two feet, from where it came up last year. It seems to be growing well, but it has not bloomed yet. Is there a reason for this?

Passionflower typically dies down to ground level in your gardening region so pruning it back had no effect on its failure to bloom. Your plant came up in a different area because the original stems died back and the roots (which are probably several feet in all directions away from the crown of the plant) sent up a new colony of stems. Give them a chance to mature and they may very well flower for you later this summer.
