I have a wisteria for two years and it has not bloomed. What could cause this?

Depending on the species of wisteria, it may be too young to bloom....may take several years before it is mature enough to bloom.....the new cultivars are being grafted, which enables them to bloom earlier at a younger age....
Location and soil is another factor....they need sun...the more the better and good soil...you may want to fertilize the vine (not too much though)....
The most important point is pruning......they require (once they are large and established) to be pruned twice per season once around July and again in March...this will ensure good blooming....the best way for you to learn the proper way to prune is to visit the website "Youtube" and type in the search section "Pruning Wisteria vines".....they will show you short movies on how to prune for more blooms.

I agree on the age factor. They tend to need several years in a preferred spot before blooming. Patience is key with Wisteria.
