Growing guide for our winter sun perennials

sun_logoSUNNY SPOTS AND SUN LOVERS: Plants, which have a full sun requirement, means exactly that! If these plants get too much shade and not enough sun, they will perform poorly. They usually grow leggy, have weak stems, flop over and will flower poorly. Sun lovers need at least 6-8 hours of direct sun each day.
