Non-Flowering Bradford Pear Tree

I planted a Bradford pear tree about 6 years ago, which I purchased at a gardening center. Although it has grown tall, each year my tree gets only a very few puny white blooms while the rest is green leaves. Other Bradfords in the area are in full white bloom. The town also planted a Bradford about 15 feet from mine, which also goes into a beautiful bloom. What is wrong with my tree?

I would go with a phosphorus rich fertilizer. This will help with flower production.
