Monkshood...for sun or for shade?
I'm trying for a cottage garden effect in my yard and decided to post here because of that.
My question: Assuming one lives in the mid-Atlantic (sultry summers, HOT sun) would 6+ hours of full sun be too much for Monkshood to handle(the species A. napellus in particular)? I keep reading contradictory information about this plant; those saying "full sun" seem to be English gardeners and, well, summer here is nothing like an English summer. I actually have an order of these plants on the way and was planning on planting them in my full sun front garden. I do have a place in the shade that they could go in, but it's very shady, with only early morning sun. So, for anyone growing this in a warm-summer location...should I grow it in sun or shade?
