Mine is on a warm trellis, getting east sun from sunrise onwards, then some west sun for a few hours. It is growing very well, but even though it's 3 years old, it has never produced a single flower. It's in open soil which is free draining and moist, in a large raised flower bed. Protected from strong winds. Why won't it flower? Is it still too young perhaps? Thank you for your thoughts.
...I love this climber and keep meaning to get another for my garden now.. as I don't currently have it... I just love it's free flowing nature, soft and gentle colouring...but one thing as you've already noted...it takes a while to get into flowering mode... mine didn't flower until it had got about 8 foot tall up an arch or wide if on a fence....depending which way one is growing it...
Aaaaah, thanks Salino, that has given me hope! Man in garden centre told me to prune it every year - this way before I knew anything about plants - so it's still rather short...possibly also a reason for no flowers? I haven't touched it for almost 2 years now and it's about 5ft or so - very lush and green.
