Peonies in Part Shade? or that really need FULL sun?
Are there are Peonies that will do reasonably well in a dappled/partially shaded location?..or an area that gets shade most of the morning, then gets some hours of afternoon sun?(or vice versa)...The wall behind this area has light siding, plus another area I have available is within a few feet of a very bright white fence(this area gets alot of morning sun, then shade all afternoon), so the plants may get some of that reflected "brightness" from the wall and the fence...will that help keep them happy? I'm just curious about what varieties are more tolerant of such conditions...and also if there are some varieties that especially NEED that totally full sun location to do even reasonably well?....the cultivars I have to plant are: Sarah Berhardt, Kansas, Karl Rosenfield, Felix Crousse, Sorbet, Bowl of Beauty, Bunker Hill, Dr Alex Flemming, Baroness Schroeder, Shirley Temple, Festiva Maxima, Red Magic, Blue Lagoon, and Gay Border June...Thanks for any suggestions
