How deep are they planted?  If too deep they will grow but not bloom.  Should be shallow, so that half the rhizome (sorry, in iris they are not called bulbs) is showing.  Somebody said to me once that the back should be in the sun, the roots down in the cooler ground.  The other possibility is that they don't get enough sun.  So even if on the west side of your house, if that doesn't have at least 6 hr. of sunlight you will probably get no bloom either.  These are 2 common reasons; there are doubtless others.
