Phlomis care


I recently bought x4 Phlomis tuberosa 'Amazone' from Hardy's and their site states full sun or partially shaded areas. Other websites say full sun is required though. 

I have planted x3 in full sun but was wanting to plant the remaining one in a bed which receives around 4 hours of direct sun each day (between 10-2). 

As other websites state full sun only, should I not plant it in the desired location?

    I have a north facing back garden,but because it's unoverlooked,we get some sun somewhere. I have. both varieties,under trees and shrubs,part sun and they do fine
  • That's great, thanks. Don't suppose you have any images of yours so I can get an idea of how they grow? The pics online are never easy to get a true understanding!
