Q.Daphne location

Zone 97322 | Estelle Susan Bennett added on September 30, 2017 | Answered

I purchased a Daphne Summer Ice today and was told they like shade, but after reading the information here I’m worried they misinformed me. This site says sun to partial shade and my area is full shade. Should I return it?

Your shrub will still grow. It just won't perform at its best. Partial shade can ,also, be something like filtered light through a tree canopy, or an area that only gets a few hours of sun a day. Just be mindful that these plants are deadly poisonous if they are simply chewed on. Here is a link for more information on your shrub: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/winter-daphne/daphne-plant-types.htm
