Need Consultation on New Zealand
It's a grafted plant from Weeks, came in a 5 gal. pot, planted in the ground last winter. It has grown a little bigger since then. Most of the time it's quite naked, this is the most foliage and blooms it has had so far, it really doesn't look good at all. The blooms are sparse and most of them very small, seriously lacking the famous fragrance which is the reason I wanted the plant. The blooms smelled very nice at the nersury before I purchased.
I suspect the main reason for NZ's poor performace is lack of sun. The spot only receives sun in mid day for a handful of hours, exactly how many I can't say. The buddliea bush behind it may also be stealing its nutrients.
To those who are familiar with NZ, do you think I should move it to a full sun spot? I had heard that it does better in cooler climate, I'm afraid it'll just fry in our full sun. If I don't move it, anything I can do to help the plant do better?
