Answer: If your smoke tree is getting too much fertilizer, it may not bloom well. Fertilizer will actually make the tree focus on growing taller and fuller, but you will see fewer flowers on the tree during this time. Slow growth is actually better in the end for this plant to become established and produce as it is naturally meant to do. I'd water deeply on a regular basis, withhold fertilizer and prune as little as possible. As your smoke tree matures it should be covered with blooms. Best wishes with your landscape!
