Moonflower help--buds but no blooms!
I have a mature Moonflower (10ft and still going), potted in a very sunny location. In the last two weeks the buds finally arrived, but I've yet to see the gorgeous spiraling early stage of bloom. I've got buds out the wazoo--dozens and dozens--but not a flower to be seen.
I haven't been fertilizing--which is supposed to be good. Right? Things have been a little soggy here lately, but they've been getting 6+ hours of sun most days.
I've had some experience growing these before (in Illinois), and remember them blooming much earlier in the growing season (beginning at about 4ft high).
Should I be worried? Will they ever bloom? Is there something I'm not doing? Or should start doing? Could it be the cooler evenings, windy, salty beach locale? Am I just the most impatient moonflower lover ever?
Thanks for any advice or help!
