Trumpet Vine trouble in LindsayON

heatherinthegardenAugust 31, 2008

I've had two yellow trumpet vines for 3 years now and each of the 3 summers they outdo themselves in greenery, growing to up to a healthy 20 feet but have never bloomed. I fertilized this spring and summer but still no blooms. I've been advised by a local nursery that they sometimes can take 3-5 years to become established. Is there any hope that these will ever bloom?

Trumpet vines do not like to be fertilized. That may be your problem. Just ignore it next year, and I bet it will do much better.
Following is a link to a three year old trumpet vine I have.
