Unfortunately, it appears too young to flower! Each time you cut it back, it will flower at maturity, so patience will be in order. If several months pass by, the plant is thick and bushy with many branches, and still does not flower, then you might consider a soil test. This could mean that your soil contains too much nitrogen, and not enough phosphorus and potassium.
