I installed last fall (early)_ and went fine until 2 weeks ago the customer called to ask if it was ok.. i went and looked, seems fine , few buds... So i said give it a couple weeks. Now she said its no better than it was 2 weeks ago? What gives.

Yeah ive got the same problem with some Styrax Japonicus (Japanese Snowbells) that still look like theyve been just coming out of dormancy since early April. But 10 others that are in full bloom right now. :confused:
