Is it in total shade, Keely? I have one that gets sun in the morning and it looks as though it’s suffering a bit. I can’t decide if I should move it into full shade or not 😢

@jacaranda permanent shade this one doesn't even get late sun due to holding fence gate together it loves it there and its one I often forget to water too it never complains 😂😂

@jpea this is it so you can see the size, it's only in a slim pot and needs a wider one to compliment it more, I have 3 and patio is too small to carry 3 now they flower better in bigger pots will tag you in how this one flowered last year, and if you don't want one maybe your community garden will benefit from one somewhere 😊
