The Q&A Archives: Poor Blooming

Question: I have several Indian Hawthorne shrubs and all but one bloom in spring. It produces new foliage but has yet to bloom. These shrubs are three years old and the one which is not blooming has the same light exposure etc... as the others. Your suggestions please. Thanks so much Cindy Walker

Answer: Cindy,

Very strange. It could be that the non blooming plant is a different variety which can happen by mistake. It may also be that something is different underground in the nutrition, soil type, etc. I suspect that if all is truly identical as to soil moisture, light exposure, fertilizing and other such care, then you might have an off variety in that shrub.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
