Dogwood Has Never Bloomed - Knowledgebase Question

My dogwood has never bloomed. I have had it for five years. It was moved to its current location in the center of a strip of lawn three years ago. It is growing quite vigorously, but never has had even one flower. Help!

It is not unusual for young dogwoods to be shy about flowering; any additional stress such as transplanting, excessive heat, or drought could also contribute to delayed flowering. Finally, the trees have already set their flower buds by fall for the following year, so any pruning or die back during fall or winter could remove flower buds. Maybe this will be the year!
