Watered daily early AM. Good drainage. We are in summer 100 degree plus temps. Should they be shaded? Lately temps over 105.

They can tolerate full sun. They do struggle a bit in hot weather, but they will also struggle in wet soil. Make sure that your soil is dry, thoroughly, down to about 3 to 5 inches between waterings. This will prevent disease, and root suffocation.

You may want to use a fungicide, as well.
