Q. How can I get my 5 yr old hellebore to bloom?

I have a 5 year old hellebore – beautiful plant – it has never bloomed. Not even a sign of a bud of any kind. I followed all the rules about where to plant it, light, etc. It seems quite happy and is growing, but no flowers. Any ideas?

Could the soil have to much Nitrogen?
This can cause the plant to grow lots of lush leaves and not bloom.
