Too late: That will be very late for a male or female and full endocrine workup is needed.

Agree completely - Additionally, a genetic disorder may be the source of the problem.

Late puberty: Possible but unlikely. If puberty is really not completed by this age you should see an endocrinologist. There may be a pathological reason why not.

Can a girl have a very late puberty at age 20?

Not normal: Puberty generally ranges from 9-14 years old. If it is delayed beyond that, there is an hormonal problem that must be evaluated by an endocrinologist.
