That is a great question with many possible answers. Here is what I know about Ipomemoea (which both are). They are day length sensitive and may bloom later in the season. They also like poor soil. Fertilizing isn't needed and may be setting you back. I am hopeful you will see blooms! I thought it was interesting this article mentioned the high temperature and that it wreaks havoc with blooms. I've also shared an article on other reasons plants don't bloom. Plants have a wonderful way of surprising us.
