Will columbine grow in an area that gets morning sun (4-6 hours a day) and deep afternoon shade?I live in zone 5 and the heavy shade is provided by a neighboring fence.

In my experience this should be fine -- although four hours is a bit short so they may lean toward the light. The other consideration for success with columbine is that the soil must be well drained. Goof luck with them!
