Fox Lilly not blooming
I have several Euremus in my garden. This is the second year that the leaves have come up, they look fine but no bloom stock. What might be the problem. The soil is well drained, the soil is clay about 12 in. down but has good top soil and gets annual compost. In years past, the plants have bloomed. Thank you.

It is very likely that the compost contains too much nitrogen. These will hardly ever need any extra feeding, even with infertile soils. Too much nitrogen will prevent blooming.
The way to counter act this, at this point will be to add a fertilizer that is high in phosphorous and potassium, such as potassium phosphate. The other, will be to elevate the soil pH slightly, using dolomitic lime.
