Help--are my plants going to get too much sun?
I've moved recently, and have a mostly shady area to plant. So I've invested in some gorgeous hostas ('Guacamole') and lots of impatiens for the front flower bed, which faces south, but with lots of pines and hardwoods.
I noticed yesterday that the bed is getting full sun from 2 PM to around 4 PM. I know this might change somewhat during our hot southern summers, but I'm worried about how my plants will fare. (I wish I were smart enough to determine the sun's angle in the future!)
Any ideas on how to keep my beautiful plants from cooking this summer?
