I love, love, love this plant! We had our backyard landscaped after a tornado brought down a number of trees in our natural area. It is still very natural but has a circular path and thoughtfully planted native shrubs and trees and there is more sun although it likely qualifies as part sun in the open area and part shade to shade in others. I love that this plant is suitable in all those lighting conditions and the plumes of color in the morning sun is spectacular. We have heavy clay below a shallow layer of clayey loam and I mixed in a lot of Ultra Planting Mix by Farfel and the plants are thriving in our zone 6a area even with higher ph soil than is recommended. Could not be happier with this adaptable plant in my shady garden.

Zone 7. Planted in part shade, barely grew in size. I believe it needs sun to thrive. Huge disappointment.Abigail Muller, Tennessee, United States, 1 year ago
