begenia won't bloom

Hi everyone. I have had two begenias for 5 years now and they have never flowered. I live in London and they seem toi be pretty common in neighbours' gardens. They have never produced that many leaves either, but they survive and keep coming back every year and I keep thinking: will this be the year they bloom. They are in a west-facing bed.  Thanks for any suggestioins.

    I gave up growing Bergenias due to vine weevils eating the roots, but otherwise they were fairly easy, hardy plants. They don't like to be too dry but otherwise are usually good doers.

    It may be worth lifting them, checking for weevil larvae, improving the soil and replanting.
