Pretty solid plant. Mine is planted in morning sun with dappled shade the rest of the day. It blooms surprisingly well with the amount of sunlight it gets. It looks great in midsummer and flowers with my white physostegia and heliopsis. It does flop a little but I don't mind that because it looks good flopped where it is.
