Hi,
Given that it is wiry, I would guess it hasn't been pruned regularly. It doesn't require much in the way of hard pruning, but old shoots should be removed after flowering. Only other thought is even thought the garden is west-facing, is it getting enough sun? They really want a lot of sun to flower well. Also, they are just on the border of being hardy - any chance they could be getting frost damage?
