Manipulating the light
Since I grow in pots, it's fairly easy to move a plant into more or less light. I've had Orange Marmalade in quite a bit of light, but it's lost most of it's color. It's grown really well, though. Next to it, I had Paradigm, which is doing great. It's growing well and has great color. Of course, soon everything has to be moved into more shade.
How do you know which ones to give the light? Generally speaking, I thought that if it had a good deal of white, it needed more light. But Chris commented on a certain hosta the other day and made me question that assumption.
Had I moved Orange Marmalade to more shade once she was all leafed out, would she have held the color better? How do you best manipulate the light to get the best of your hosta?
