Black Eyed Susan Vine Stopped Bloomimg?

I have a beautiful black eyed Susan vine. It has stopped blooming. What have I done? I water it and make sure it gets afternoon shade. I have been removing seeds as they appear. Should I be doing something else?

They do well in and outdoors but either way, they seem to do better with some support, like a trellis. It seems to promote flowering...at least it did when I had them. They also like warmer temps at night so if you have them in a pot, bring them in on cooler nights. I am unusual in that I avoid fertilizer in 99% of my plants. I feel like it is overkill and too much fuss. Below is a nice link about these lovelies!

You should trim it back a bit to help promote new growth. Normally plants don't need to be fertilized each month or watered daily. let it go one or two days between watering.

You may be doing everything right but maybe a little too much of each thing...

  • You do not say if your plant is in the ground or if it is in a container but it is assumed you have it planted outside.
  • Here are some suggestions from lovers of Black Eyed Susan vines:
  • Not flowering generally is a watering problem, mostly overwatering. Watch your watering. If you want to maximize your blooms try Bloom Booster by Miracle-Gro and follow directions carefully.
  • Mulching around the base of the plants will keep the roots cool and moist, without fear of rotting.
  • Feeding every 4 - 6 weeks, with a complete fertilizer, to keep it growing strong.
  • Too much nitrogen can cause plants to produce more foliage and less blooms.
  • Black-eyed Susan vine does go through a period in the dead of summer heat (late-July and August) when it tends to slow down on producing blooms.

    As soon as cooler weather starts back up again in September it should start to bloom again in force.

I do not think it will make a big difference except you will have to watch it carefully as you do not want it to dry out but not wet all the time either.

When you go to purchase your Bloom Booster why not check one of these out also as I use one of these with a lot of potted plants. These are available at most garden centers and come in just for water gauge or a 3 in 1 like this.

It may have too much water. Try putting some mulch on it.

When watering I tend to use the one inch down rule. Now this the 1st year I have had Blackeyed Susan Vine plant so the watering rule may be different, I fertilize monthly. And now I just don't know what to do,

Your problem may be overwatering. This vine requires well-drained soil and moderate watering.
