This can have a few causes, but the main few are as follows:

Too much nitrogen in the soil, or not enough phosphorus and potassium will halt flowering. You can offset by adding phosphorus and potassium.

Sometimes, improper pruning, or pruning at the wrong time can cause this, as well. They are best pruned in Spring when new growth begins.
