I love to Potter around. I love colours & shapes. My garden is my happy place, I plant for smells, sight and to attract wildlife x

I do this year yes @jacaranda had 3 in different spots last year and it really didn't like the sun!

I’ve been reading lots of comments about it on line and they all say that full shade is the only place for this variety. I hope yours continues to do well as it’s a lovely plant. 💚

It could change as the leaves age. Or maybe you have a yellow feather. Either way it looks great.

It is for a hosta lol. I planted 3? of these and I'm wondering if I can expect anything from them at all this year. They seem so weak and frail.

If they have close to zero direct sun, @allhop74 you have the best chance of seeing white foliage

@emch two are in full shade, one in dappled so fingers crossed

Well it's been a while but I'm finally back. 2 melanomas removed, one brain tumour destroyed, two kidney angiomyolipomas diagnosed and monitored and one malignant ovarian tumour removed. All in the space of 6 months!!!! It's been a roller coaster ride, but I'm back, new start, new outlook on life, new patch of garden and three of these new beauties to plant. Life is good 😊
