I have a scarlet dropmore honeysuckle that was purchased last year from a local nursery. The plant looks beautiful and very healthy; however, it did not bloom last year nor has it bloomed this year. I live in central Missouri. Thanks for any help/advice/information that you can give!!

It may just be in need of some phosphorus, which helps most plants with blooming. Bone meal is a good way to add phosphorus to the soil. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
