Summer Ice Daphne - Placement?
I just purchased a small summer ice daphne. I know these are finicky and don't like to be moved, so I'm trying to find the right spot the first time!
I am more familiar with daphne's needing shade. All information I can find on this is that this one can take sun. The spots I have open are:
1) Top of slope, southern exposure and full sun almost all day
2) Western exposure near and therefore underneath the edge of the canopy of an oak. In front of front door of house. Filtered sunlight, with periods of (hot) direct sun in late afternoon.
I'm wondering how much sun this one really needs to perform well. I'm not a real fan of the full sun location for this shrub. Both options are on some level of slope, and drainage is not an issue. I'd like to take the spot that's more shady, but wondering if that's enough sun for it and if it can take 1-2 hours of zone 7 late afternoon sun in high summer.
Thanks for any advice you can give!
