And, does Rangoon creeper bloom only once?I fertilized it heavily and it finally bloomed in June, but no more. Reply The Arbor Gate on August 11, 2016 at 3:02 pm On Bird of Paradise, age of the plant has a lot to do with bloom. For better bloom plant in full to part sun. Blooms are produced along the outside of plant. They do well with an organic food such as Arbor Gate Blend every 3 months during the growing season. Rangoon creeper repeat blooms. It also requires full sun and regular fertilization. Once per month during growing season with Arbor Gate Blend. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
