    That is definitely an Echium. It is just not performing as well as it should. It will be hard to say, exactly, which variety that it is, but it could very well be exactly what you ordered.

    Normally, almost the entire Genus is considered invasive. Give it time, and it will spread and reseed. This is the closest relative to your Echium that we have an article on, though they all have almost the exact same care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/vipers-bugloss/growing-vipers-bugloss.htm
