Are you by any chance pruning in the fall or late winter? If so, you may be cutting off the buds that formed on "old wood." I found some conflicting information on whether it blooms on old or new wood, but generally, spring flowering shrubs bloom on old wood so you might try only pruning in late spring.

It also likes acidic, well-draining soil. You can cut back on the frequent watering and go instead to less frequent, but deep watering.

Check all these variables and see if the plant is getting what it needs. Here is more:
