Answer: The most typical reason for lack of bloom in a mountain laurel that has been blooming and in place for several years is improper pruning. The blooms occur on wood set the previous year. If you prune in the spring before bloom, you will remove the flower buds. Removing the spent flowers is beneficial if it is done immediately after blooming, the benefit is reduced by doing it later in the season or the following year. I apologize for the delay in answering your question.
