I have some questions about the various echies, how well they performed, the sun exposure and soil conditions.

I have a few different types of echies plant throught out my yard. I have Hot Lava, Green Envy, Milk Shake, Purple, White and Tomato Soup. Most are on the north or east side of my home and all live in amended soil. Hot Lava and Green Envy are my best performers but I was not really impressed with either of them this year. It seems that my bloom fizzled really fast. I'm assuming it was due to the heat and lack of rain. Some of the echies got more water than others but I don't think there was a big different in their performance.

What was your experience this year with your echies? Typical year?

I'm no where near that many , and I would say what I have was near usual only you could tell the plants had stressed more than a usual year.Did have one volunteer that liked it all well though.
Most of mine are native purple and one "Milkshake" that won't bloom this year, with the plant is looking real nice.
