The Q&A Archives: Type Of Sun Required For Dwarf Astromeria(princess Lily)

Question: I'm not sure where to plant a Dwarf Astromeria I just bought. I had an idea where I wanted it(full sun), but the label says Sun Exposure = shade. I had looked around and thought I would be able to plant it in full sun to partial shade . What type of sun exposure does it really need? Please explain how much and when as well...

Answer: In your hot summer climate, Alstroemeria will need shade from afternoon sunshine. If you have a site that receives morning sun and afternoon shade, it would be perfect. Study your garden carefully - sometimes neighboring trees or shrubs can cast afternoon shade on an otherwise sunny bed. Hope you find just the right spot for your Alstroemeria!
