Little Henry Sweetspire has no blooms
I planted a young Little Henry Sweetspire last fall in a mostly shade area (1-2 hours of mid afternnon sun and dappled sun other parts of day) where I have clay soil. I've read they can be happy in full shade. I've watched it all year and I've not seen one bloom. We had horrible heat this year in Illinois, and it did get pretty dry sometimes. Do these shrubs take a while to get settled? Maybe it was just a bad year for all the plants (which is what they are telling me at the gardening centers), or should I move it to more sun, or just less clay?
