For me this cultivar has much better color in full shade. Reds are more rich burgundy, and the chartreuse green contrast is more pronounced. If the sun gets to it too much, the reds take on a rusty tint and there is less green. I keep most of mine in pots so I can move them around to keep them shaded.
