Foxtail Lily Fail to Bloom

My foxtail lilies are now 4 years old and have bloomed every year except this year. The foliage is there but only 1 feeble flower. Is there something I should do to ensure flowers next year?

It’s likely the soil. If soil has too much nitrogen, it will encourage more foliage growth as opposed to flowering, which needs more phosphorus. Use a ‘bloom booster’ fertilizer or add some bone meal to the soil to help add some phosphorus.
