Will my Passion vines recover from winter?
I live in (just found out) zone 8b. I planted 12 vines in midsummer and they did beautifully but did not flower. We did not have a particularly hard winter. Temp. dipped below 25 a few times. Not seeing any signs of life yet. Any hope?

For the flowering, it sounds like it may have too much nitrogen and not enough phosphorous. Plants need a balance between phosphorous and nitrogen to bloom well. I would recommend giving it some bone meal to increase phosphorous.
If you see green, it will come back. This article will help determine if the plant is still alive: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
