It's a little slow, but it should begin to flower this month. Sometimes plants wait for just the right soil and air temperature to develop flower buds. When the spring weather is cool, the soil remains cool for a long time. Now that summer is almost officially here, things should be warm enough to promote flowering. Just be patient - it will be worth the wait!
