No Flowers On Passion Vine

Anonymous added on August 30, 2011 | Answered

My passion flower did not flower this year, lots of growth but no flowers. I have it in a large pot and water regularly. Should I cut it all the way back for winter and move into a sheltered area? I live in Vancouver, Wa. and we get pretty cold weather in the winter. We had a foot of snow last year that's very unusual, but the passion flower may not make it through that kind of winter. This was the first year for this plant. I also planted a purple morning glory with it and it did fantastic.
