I'd suggest it looks like it's not been given the best start in life. It seems to be too close to the house, which means it'll be a lot drier than you'd imagine,and you've other plants at its feet, competing for rain and nutrients.
I'd remove the plants, clear a decent sized area around it and mulch with well rotted garden compost / manure and give it a bit of TLC.
It doesn't look very big, I'd be tempted to dig it up and move it away from the downpipe as I think you're storing up trouble for the future if it does start to grow around it.
