The most common reasons for peonies to fail to bloom include insufficient light (they do best in full sun all day long), immaturity or recent planting (it may take several years for them to settle in and bloom well) or having been planted so that their eyes or growth buds are too deep, meaning more than about two inches below the soil surface. Other possibilities include lack of fertility, a disease problem, and overall weakness caused by trimming away the foliage too early in the season -- the foliage should be left in place until after frost knocks it down in the fall. I hope this helps you troubleshoot the problem.
