I just added these plants to my want list. Now just to find them. Will they grow in full shade?

They will grow in full shade but they won't be as full and will tend to get leggy. I initially thought they preferred more shade but have found they perform much better with at least half a day of sun. If you're looking for one for shade, try Euphorbia amygdaloides f. purpurea http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/97547/. Just beware this one self sows and pops up everywhere in the gardens! I actually like some of the spots where it's found a new home. This year it's popping up through the Rubus calycinoides http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/81725/, a combination I wouldn't have thought of but they work beautifully together :)
