|I planted a number of Lemony Lace Elderberry shrubs last September. They currently look fantastic and are doing well. I planted at the advice of my local nursery in a location that gets a great deal of sun - especially in the afternoon from around 11:00 through sunset. I now learn after researching that they do not do so well in heat zone 8 (We are in growing zone 7 but heat zone 8). Do you think these will survive if they are watered an mulched well?|

|They seem very happy so far, I'll bet they do fine.

|I'd heard the same about the Black Lace elderberry, and planted them in semi-shade at my daughter's house in Utah. Up the street from her is another house with the same bush in a west facing bed against a brick wall and it's magnificent. So, yes I'd say just mulch the root zone well to try and keep the roots cool and moist, and be sure it's watered enough.
The color may be better in a bit of shade, but I'm sure they will do fine.
