The most common reasons for lack of bloom would be insufficient sunlight possibly combined with an oversupply of nitrogen, inadvertently pruning off the flowering wood, and in some cases immaturity. Inexplicably, certain of these plants just seem to take an extra few years before deciding to bloom. Maybe this will be the year for yours.
