Answer: Nikko Blue enjoys morning sun and filtered afternoon sunshine. If planted in full sun, the leaves will droop in the afternoon but should recover by morning. Nikko Blue produces flowers on new shoots which develop on old wood. So, if you cut all the old wood off, there will be no flowers that season. Instead of cutting everything down, cut them to knee-high (about 18" from the soil level). This will provide enough old wood for new flowering stems to develop.
You can move your Nikko Blue in the winter when it is dormant and it will establish itself before the spring growth season arrives.
Best wishes with your garden!
