    I have what I was told is a Glory Flame Vine. I have had it 2 years now and still no blooms. Has anyone heard of this plant? And if so what special care does it take? It is fairly large and bushy... Any ideas?

    These are the leaves from the vine. They are very thin... I don't know how else to explain them.. but here's a couple pictures to help.

    Tecomaria capensis may also be possible.

    I am thinking that the leaves do look like Campsis. Campsis take a number of years before it starts flowering.

    Initially I thought the leaves may be the Chilean Glory Vine, but they don't look similar:
