Wisteria blooming

(Question)

I planted 2 wisteria vine plants 2-3 years ago in my backyard on an arbor trellis. They seem to be healthy and growing well, but they have never bloomed for me. When should I expect it to bloom? Is there something I can do to encourage blooming? It doesn’t get a lot of direct sunlight as its under a black oak tree. Before I planted the wisteria there were grapevines that seemed to do very well until they died a few years ago. Thanks for any help you can provide me!
