Full sun for the Duchess?
I'd like to grow a Duchess de Brabant in an area that gets morning sun from sunrise to about 11am-noon, so 5-6 hours with afternoon shade. It will have a light colored wall behind it below 3 feet and a glass window higher--so some relfected heat and light, but not a lot.
I know sun exposure is not the same depending on the intensity of the climate, but would anyone know if 5-6 hours of morning sun in the Southeast (Nashville zone 6b/7a) would be consider "Full Sun"?
Some sources say DdB can take a bit of shade, but this will be a specimen plant in a perennial garden so I need it to be a star and do more than just get by.
If not the Duchess any other suggestions?
