Fertilize flame vines the first year starting in early spring. Use an all purpose low dose fertilizer.
Repeat as directed on the packaging since each brand of fertilizer has different release rates. Once or twice more should be sufficient.
Prune flame vines each year after blooming. Cut back to shape and to remove dead and damaged branches.
To encourage more growth and blooms, cut back to about three feet from the ground. In addition, it is important to keep the vines away from other flowers and shrubs.
Flame vines will not only take over the area, creating a disorganized space, they can strangle the other plants.
