Honeysuckle won't bloom

I'm in the Central Florida area and I planted a honey suckle several years ago in an area that gets direct sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. Its blooms have always been dismal. I have two questions. What kind of fertilizer will force it to bloom and will cutting it back help?

More sun = more bloom. You may want to consider moving the plant, or better yet, bury a strand until roots grow, cut it off and plant it in full sun. Phosphorus (the 2nd number in the fertilizer formula) encourages bloom, but that will help only if your soil is lacking. Another option is to find/buy a variety that blooms well in part-sun. I have some wild honey suckle that grows in shade, with very small flowers. This is one of my favorite fragrant plants.

Thanks. It technically is in a good location, but the sun has to come through a semi-opaque screen in the morning when it gets its best light.
Regarding wild vines. There is a wild vine which has overtaken the vacant lot next to me. It's blooming on the top of the trees and looks like yellow Carolina Jasmine -- but there is no fragrance. Any idea what it might be?
And yet another question: I'm trying to find a vine that I can control and put in a flower box with trellis, but there's nothing small enough that I can find in the stores. Any suggestions?

Annual vines work well in this situation. They grow easily and quickly from seed. trailing Nasturtium Black eyed Susan (Thunbergia) Morning Glory Cardinal Climber Canary Bird Flower (Tropaeolum peregrinum) Runner Bean Mina lobata Sweet Pea Select Seeds has plants of some of these.
Perennial: Clematis ?? bougainvillea (maybe too large in Fla. ?) Jasminum sambac: Arabian Jasmine, Pikake Hardenbergia (I find most perennial vines get very large quckly in my climate.)

Thank you, Mleblanca! I posted my questions on another thread because I did not yet have an answer and I'm going to the nursery today. Your answers were wonderful! I'm going to look for some trailing nasturtium.

Lady Bank's Rose, Rosa banksiae, is very vigorous and could look very much like Carolina Jessamine. The yellow form of Lady Banks is 'Lutea'
