I have one on the garage  wall that hasn't got a single flower. A cutting taken from it on the pergola has lovely blooms. Both pruned  at the same time. No explanation as to reason why. This year's weird weather maybe?

There is a cup shaped fungi called dung cup that looks like that.It grows on old dung. Presumably it came in the topsoil. Its harmless and will die off in time.
