Why are my red honeysuckle vines not blooming?

Why are my yellow honeysuckle vine blooming but my red ones are not. This is the second season. They are both on the same trellis. The yellow ones have been blooming for five weeks now.

What varieties of honeysuckle do you have? If your red variety is Major Wheeler, it may just be a matter of patience and time. It often doesn't start blooming in spring as soon as some of the yellow flowered honeysuckles.
