Why isn't my Japanese Pittosporum blooming??
Fulton/Georgia, United States
When I bought it 4 years ago it was in full bloom. It has now grown into a huge, healthy bush, but has not bloomed since. It gets a little pruning late each spring (past the bloom time) and is absolutely beautiful, but I bought it for the intoxicating spring scent of the blossoms. This year I noticed just a few blooms deep inside the plant, on growth over 2 years old, not enough to give off any noticable scent. Why isn't it blooming on the newer growth? It's in a perfect location and is otherwise gorgeous.
