The Q&A Archives: Shady or Sunny Spot for Ruby Slipper?
Question: I'm interested in planting a lobelia (ruby slipper) in a shady to full shade area. In earlier Burpee catalogue it showed Ruby Slipper to be in Full sun. The last catalogue I looked at it had part to full shade. Which one is it?
Answer: Ruby Slipper Lobelia prefers partial shade but will tolerate 3-5 hours of direct sunlight if provided protection during the hottest part of the day. Hope this clears up the confusion!
