My Lady Hillingdon has been planted for a couple of years but is not really taking off. I think the problem is radiated heat from a west facing wall. Last summer I tried blocking the mid day heat with a chair and we have planted a cherry tree that some day will shade the bed from the afternoon heat and a potted boougainvilea to cover part of the wall but for now she and her friend Golden Celebration remain unhappy.
We probably have a few more weeks of morning fog before it really gets hot. I am thinking of moving her this weekend to a cooler spot along with GC and replacing with a sage
What do you think?
Will she hate being moved more than the hot months of August to October?
She looks so pretty in other peoples gardens I would like to see her happy here. Could she handle some shade?
GC will be moved to a shadier spot this plant is about 6 years old in the garden and is only 18" tall
