lilac tree - Knowledgebase Question

I have a lilac tree that is now about 5' tall. It has never bloomed in the 3 years since I have planted it. It gets early morning sun only. Should I move it and if so when is the right time to do that? Will it ever bloom here in the piedmont area of North Carolina? Thank you!

Your lilac will eventually bloom - especially if you move it to a sunnier spot. Lilacs bloom on new growth so pruning immediately after flowering will give it all summer long to produce new growth which should include flower buds. Best wishes with your lilac!
