I like the look of flowering ivy, but mine has never shown a sign of a flower. Is it one of those plants that takes a long time or am I not caring for it properly? Mine is five years old and climbed 25' up the wall.

It's like a lot of vines - it has to get woody, with dark leaves. This takes several years. If you prune it hard each year, it will stay juvenile and never flower.
