Sun vs Shade
I purchased a "soft caress mahonia" that has light requirements of shade to dappled sun. My Q.s are: (1) When plants have a shade requirement, is that primarily for the hot summer season? And, now that we have entered the cooler mid-fall period, the leaves have fallen creating a greater area of sun exposure. (2) Will shade loving plants like these be OK with the sun positioned at a lower angle and the temps being cooler?
