Q.I Have Two Esperanza Plants in My Front Yard That Won’t Bloom
I have fed them Miracle Grow plant food, watered them and they are in full sun and they won’t bloom! They have both had one or two blooms on them and that’s all. The foliage is pretty and they are growing very well. I also have good soil. What am I doing wrong?

It's likely too much nitrogen fertilizer, which results in more foliage growth and little to no flowering. This can be offset by adding more phosphorus to the soil, either with a high phosphorus fertilizer or bone meal.
