Rosy Returns seems to have the best color when provided with full sun. When I grew this plant in partial shade it had a less saturated bloom color & wasn't very pretty in my opinion. I moved it, and in its new location it gets 10 hours of sun. The color is now much more saturated & pleasing to the eye. It also blooms a really long time in my garden, sometimes until frost.
