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.

I would say your purple passion flower is experiencing what is known as 'bud blast'. It basically means there is an issue in the environment that needs correcting such as water, lighting, humidity, etc. For more information on bud blast, please visit the following article:
