I live in the Texas Gulfcoast area. I planted a Bottlebrush tree in early spring. When I purchased it, it had a few blooms. I planted it in full sun and in healthy soil. Although it continues to grow very well and appears to be very healthy, it will not bloom. Why do I not have any blooms, and what can I do to make it bloom?

If they are getting enough light (which is the most common reasons for plants failing to flower), then it is likely a lack of phosphorus. Plants need phosphorus to flower. Bone meal is a good source of phosphorus (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/bone-meal-fertilizer.htm).
