The Q&A Archives: Light requirements for Reeves Skimmia

Question: Can Reeves Skimmia withstand direct sun or does it require partial shade/shade to thrive?

Answer: It grows best in part to full shade; full sun will bleach the color from the foliage. I'd position the plant so it is completely shaded from hot afternoon sun to keep it looking its best.
