Philadelphus that never flowered

Philadelphus that never flowered

I bought a Philadelphus plant in Lidl about 5 years ago and planted it in garden but it never flowered all I get is plenty of leaves I include photo. Marie Jo, Youghal, Co Cork Posted: 14/08/2017

In the photo it is close to a bigger bush and probably finding it hard to get established, and some bigger shrubs can be slow to flower anyway as they spend some years building up to flowering size.

Any pruning that you did would have further delayed flowering.
