Thanks, Stefan and Tara. These are planted in shade along fence...but they will be in sun after we cut down some magnolias but the neighbor's trees will keep them shaded.

Hi Betsy! You may find that they won't do so well after the tree is cut, may just shock them a bit, but soon to recover. Too much sun, and they will 'sunburn'. Good luck with them! Thumbs up

Yes, Stefan, they do make attractive houseplants as well! Have yours bloomed?
