John, in our relentless sun here in Fl. I would say that's a perfect place to plant them. DL's are very tough & can take full Fl. sun but they almost always do better with a little relief from it especially during summer when we can have 12 hours of "inferno" conditions.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others. ~~ Sharon Brown
