I've had a golden chain tree in the ground for several years now. 3 years ago it bloomed beautifully, many long chains of yellow flowers. The last two years it gets about 3 flowers. I can't figure what is different. Any thoughts? It's about 12 feet tall now.

Some flowering trees, fruit & nut trees won't produce if you use any spray around them like 2-4D. slkpk

No. I don't think that's it. I rarely spray anything except poison ivy, and there is none of that anywhere near the tree.

From my reading I have two working theories. 1) The buds are freezing off in late spring cold. I'm near the top of the range for this tree and maybe two years ago we didn't have a late frost so I got more flowers. 2) I live in the woods but the center island of my driveway where the tree is is as open an area as I have, the tree likes a sheltered spot.
