How Do I Get My Hummingbird Vine to Blossom?

I’ve had it for two years. It vines very well but no flowers. I live in Mn. I have sandy soil. I used sheep manure for fertilizer.I took your advice,gave it bone meal, still no flowers. Now what?

You may be lacking phosphorus, especially with the addiion of sheep manure which has a higher nitrogen content. If there is a lack of phosphorus in the soil, plants will have little to no blooms. You can either use a phosphorus rich fertilizer or add some bone meal to the soil.

Some Leaves Dying

Why are some of the leaves on my hummingbird vine dying? Not all the leaves, just some and they are all new and on the same branches.   This is a new plant for me since I have never had the room before to grow one, so I don’t know some of the habits of this plant. Thank you, Patricia

If you are talking about Campsis, this article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/rose-bush-diseases.htm

And if it is Campsis, don't worry, it's bullet proof, really.
If it isn't, there's another vine called Cypress. This this is an article for that plant:

What Plant Do We Have?

We have a plant growing side-by-side with and, in fact, intertwined with a hummingbird vine. Difference is, the leaves are similar to gingko, the blossoms are bright yellow, and it has produced long skinny seed pods, 9 or 10 inches long, and curved. Any idea what we have??

Would it be possible for you to send us a photo? You can send it to questions@gardeningknowhow.com. Maybe with a picture we could ID it.

How Long Does It Take for a Hummingbird Vine to Bloom

I planted a hummingbird vine 4 yrs ago. The vine is very healthy and aggressive, but has not bloomed one flower in the 4 yrs. Is there anything that needs to be done to help it bloom?

One possibility is that the plant may be receiving too much nitrogen from lawn fertilizer.
If you think this could be the case, avoid fertilizing the lawn within 10ft of the vine.

If you don't think this is an issue, I would suggest adding a slow release high in phosphorous fertilizer in early spring.
This could be labeled at 'bloom booster' in the garden center.
This may help the plant get started blooming.

What Is This Flowering Vine

This vine, when cut, gives off a sticky substance and a kinda sweet smell. What is it and how do I get rid of it?

Is this part of the plant or a bad thing?
