Plantaginea is noted for preferring a sunny location so they probably
would not like their current location.  Give them some sun and I'll
be surprised if they don't improve quickly.
Most of mine are planted in areas without much direct sunlight and do
well.  Blues do well in shade as a rule, the sun tends to take
the bloom off the leaves.  Wish I could be more specific, but I'm
sure someone will.
