Azeleas under oak trees

I have 8 azalea bushes planted under 2 large oak trees (4 years ago) & they have never filled out or bloom very much. Are they in the wrong place?

Azaleas can grow well in partial shade, but the shade under these large oak trees may be too dense. Also, the roots of the oak trees could be soaking up most of the moisture so that the azaleas are suffering from moisture stress, too.
