I have a Viburnam Tomentosum Mariesii (planted 2 years ago) and a Crape Myrtle Red Rocket Red (planted last year) that have never bloomed.

Plant maturity and exposure to sunshine are the two most important elements in good growth and flowering of trees and shrubs. Your viburnum and crape myrtle may be too young to flower, or they may not be getting the full sunshine they need to make them thrive. Both flower on new growth of the season so wait until next spring and when new growth starts, prune them both back to encourage healthy new (and hopefully flowering) growth.
