    I cut mine back hard in the Spring.

    My dad planted a passiflora; in three years it covered a large expanse of wall but never flowered. He threatened it:. "If it doesn't flower this year, it's coming out.". It flowered that year and every year after.

    I found mine were just a leafy mass with not enough flowers to justify the space they were taking up. Out they came.

    Mines in its second year and has a few buds, hoping it will do well.

    Had mine a few weeks... Growing well.

    I can only assume it'll get much much bigger.
