Why Isn’t My Morning Glory Blooming?

I have a large Morning Glory plant on the west side of the yard and it gets lots of sun and has grown very large but doesn’t bloom. My neighbor’s vines do just fine. I’m in central Texas and our temperature ranges from 75 to 98. Help.

Your soil may be lacking phosphorous. Without enough phosphorous, plants cannot bloom. Add some bone meal to the soil around the plant to add phosphorous. Here is more information:

Blue Morning Glories

I have beautiful vines but they are not blooming. Not even a sign of a bloom.

The soil may be lacking enough phosphorus, which it needs to produce blooms. Try giving the plant some bone meal to add some phosphorus.

Plants That Do Not Bloom

Last year I grew beautiful morning glories in containers. Seeds that overwintered in the pots are growing into large, extensive and healthy vines – but no blooms. I have fertilized several times. No blooms at all. It’s getting late in the season. Should I give up and rip them out?

ANSWERS

It's quite possible that they're getting too much fertilizer, especially nitrogen, which promotes more foliage growth than flowers. It can also reduce the viability of seeds. Ease up on the fertilizer or use one with more phosphorus, which promotes flower growth. Also, you may want to start plants earlier. It could be that they had a late start.

Sugar Snap Peas and Morning Glories

I have a very large pot and in the past have used 2 packets of morning glories to grow up an iron structure. This year I’d like to try both morning glories and sugar snap peas. Do you think this will work?

Provided that they share the same or similar growing conditions, I don't see why not.

Morning Glories

I am growing mixed kinds of morning glories in my yard. Why do some have vigorous vines and no flowers, while others have rather slight vines, yet beautiful flowers? These are planted 4′ apart in the same bed with identical growing conditions. They have full sun and adequate water. What am I doing wrong? Is there anything I can do to encourage the ‘flowerless’ ones to bloom?
