Carolina Jessamine won't bloom


I bought this plant 4 years ago and it had several blooms on it then. Now it has grown to cover the arbor and it's never bloomed. It is very healthy, otherwise. Any suggestions to get it to bloom? It gets about 5 hours of sun a day - 3 or more in the a.m. and 2 in the evening.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Kim,

I'm wondering if you are fertilizing. Most perennial vines prefer a rich soil and a light hand with fertilizer, especially synthetic fertilizers. Too much fertilizer can cause leafy growth at the expense of flowers.
