This is on my list - good for shade I think? @dan5584

Yes I have mine in shade, spreads really well too, I find it to be quite a thirsty plant! The foliage is always so fresh looking, I absolutely love it! @mulberry

I’m sure it will do ok, I have one in full sun, but I always notice if it don’t give it any water for a day or 2 it will wilt. But in the shade it will be ok I’m sure! Picked a new rose yet? 🤣😉 @mulberry

I’m still not sure I have the right kind of garden for roses - too many tree roots and big shrubs. I’ve read they don’t like the competition! I did order one, but it didn’t go through...maybe it was a sign??!! 🤣😩 @dan5584
