I'm afraid that these plants are not quite suited for your area. They tend to do better in zones 8 and under. They will require the cooler temperatures of winter to flower properly.

Now, that is not to say that you will never see a bloom. After several years at full maturity, they can start to flower regardless of conditions, but it will be much less often.

You can try storing the tubers in the refrigerator during the hottest portions of the year, and replant them during the cooler portion. This can simulate a "winter" and help them to flower.
