The Q&A Archives: Hardly any flowers

Question: I have two Redbuds, 1 that's 4 years old and 1 that's 3 years old and neither of them has very many flowers. What gives?
I live in zone 5 and they're on either sides of my house if that means anything.

Answer: Redbuds can flower in as little as 4 years but most take much longer and they bloom best when they are in full sunshine. Give your plants a few more years and I think they will reward you with lots of flowers.
