Here in MA, I have a 20 year old Cornus Kousa Dogwood that has bloomed profusely for most of its lifetime with its exception being this Spring with only 5.% of the tree in bloom. Each year, the bloom period is from June 1-Sept 1, with fruit/seed forming after this point Why? What action should I take?
