Acacia baileyana ‘Purpurea’, purchased five years ago, in flower, has not flowered since, and gas hardly grown. The leading shoot has died off but the rest looks healthy. Shaded for part of the day by other trees. Well drained soil. Should I move it to more sunshine? Why does it not flower?

That acacia should be 3 metres tall in five years, doing well. It needs full sunhsine, well-drained soil.

It does not move well and you may lose it. It is possible that it was too deeply planted.
