They are in the same location in the garden, get plenty of sun and water and the plants look as healthy as can be. Why won’t they bloom for me?

If they look healthy but will not bloom, then your soil may have too much nitrogen and not enough phosphorus. Lots of nitrogen will produce healthy foliage growth but little to no blooms. Phosphorus is responsible for blooming, so add a phosphorus rich fertilizer to the plant or add some bone meal in around the soil to help promote flowering.
