Probably a dumb question

kaysbelle(z5IL)June 1, 2005

I have a six foot round, three tiered pyramid that gets full sun from 10:30 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. The rest of the time it is shaded by trees. I was planting impatients in it. I saw Cupid's Bower in a seed catalog and wondered if I would plant them in the pyramid. I had to water my impatients every morning so that's not a problem. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

"Cupid's bower" is one of the many common names of Achimenes. This is a shade-loving genus and I suspect that 4+ hours of full midday sun would simply be too much.
