A year ago spring, in S. Florid, I planted two troupe vine plants at
the base of a fan trellis. Last summer they grow about 6 feet and did
not blossom. I felt that was probably normal for the first year. This
year, the vines won;t stop growing, I have to keep cutting them back.
However, I can't find a single bud on them.
Anyone know why?

It is my understanding that trumpet vines bloom on last year's wood, so
if you cut off that wood, the vine will not bloom. Also, I found that
my trumpet vine produced more blooms when I cut back a nearby tree,
thereby giving the vine more direct sun.
Hope this is helpful,
Trumpet vines flower on new growth. It may take a few years for
flowers to appear. Height and or/trimming/not trimming wont affect
blooming. Dont fertilize them, and wait a year, they will eventually
