Answer: If it's Cornus florida, the Flowering Dogwood, they usually bloom in 3-5 years, given ample moisture and a well-drained, humus-rich soil that is kept mulched. If it was slow to get established or suffered a setback after planting, then the bloom will be further delayed. Dogwoods are forest understory trees so they like filtered afternoon sunshine but they can take morning sun. If your dogwood is getting hot afternoon sun, that may be enough to stress it and keep it from blooming. Hope this information helps!
