I grow Texas betony in full sun. I was worried at first because I was afraid the hot afternoon sun would burn it but it thrived. After it bloomed heavily in Spring, I cut it back some and now it's covered with lots of blooms again. I'm going to plant another one in my shade garden to see if it thrives.

I also ended up growing this in full sun. For me, it struggled much of the summer and did not grow extensively. As we've gone to fall, it's perked up a little and has rewarded some patience with some fresh blooms. I probably will move it to someplace out of the direct sun next year.
