I grow this plant in a basket, in full shade. It's doing really well by my front porch door.

Doing very well in my yard. Mine is in a pot but gets the heat blast all afternoon with summer temperatures averaging around 98. Have no problems with this cultivar. Leaves are green and ripply like spinach. It seems to be slow growing however. I expect blooms next year.

Although Blue Eyes is often grown as a hanging basket, I planted mine into the ground a few years ago, next to my Voodoo and it is becoming a low mounding bush. I don't want the hummingbirds so be tempted to go too low, so I've been pruning the lower branches off and it is progressing very well.
