Purple Passion Flower – Bud Tips Shrivel Up and the Flower Does Not Open. I have had It for about 2 months. other wise it is doing good. Lots of runners and buds , but very few of the buds open. I have fertilized (7-22-8) it a couple of times and water it every couple of days. Is this the right fertilizer for this plant?? It faces west and gets sun from noon on. Thanks for your help.
