Most peonies feature shades of red, while summer flowers come in a rainbow of colors. Many of our flowering beds are planted so that the spring, summer and fall flowers produce a continual bloom. .
The term full shade does not mean 'no sun'. A location is considered to be in full shade if it receives less than three hours of direct sun daily and receives filtered sun the rest of the day. Preferably, the hours of direct sun occur in the cooler hours of the morning with filtered protection from intense sun in the late afternoon.
