POWDER SPRINGS, GA (Zone 7B)
Question by pgraf73

I bought some Lithodora diffusa. On the pots it tells you to put them in full sun. In other stores and books I find different information. My thought is that it may was delivered by a northern company, where it needs full sun, but here in GA it doesn't. Can you give me some info on this? Thanks

You are absolutely right! Lithodora diffusa will grow best in morning sun and afternoon shade in Georgia. In cooler summer weather states it will take full sun but in southern states it needs at least some protection from hot summer sunshine. A few hours of morning sun will encourage good growth and lots of flowers. Enjoy!
