Q.Climbing Hydrangea-Why No Blooms?
I planted a climbing hydrangea 3 years ago. While the leaves appear to be very healthy, and it puts out new shoots and is planted in a shady, but well light area (perfect), it has never produced a flower! I do not know if it is white or pastel. It is very healthy. I feed it Miracle Grow for blooms; however, it never produces a bloom. It came from Lowes. I never have pruned the plant.

Climbing hydrangea sometimes can take a few years to get blooming after being plants. I would give it some phosphorus though to see if you can get it jump started. Bone meal is a great source of phosphorus.
