Q.Non-blooming Hydrangea

Zone Loganville, Georgia | Anonymous added on July 2, 2021 | Answered

I have a firefly hydrangea that was planted last spring 2019. I have fertilized as I do all my other varieties of hydrangeas that bloom beautifully, but this one still hasn’t bloomed even this year. I live just outside Atlanta, Georgia. It is a beautiful plant and very healthy but won’t bloom. What am I doing wrong?
