I have planted an Osteospermum (Perennial type) in a part sun/part shaded area – is that okay or should I move the plant to a more
sunny spot? My perennial Osteospermum, I have planted in a flower bed which gets both sun and shade. Should I move the plant to a flower bed which gets a little more sun or just leave it where it is? My thought is, even if I plant the flower in a flower bed which gets more sun, when the sun goes in, the Osteospermum will only close up again - like it current does in the bed it is in at the moment, when the sun goes in. Please help as not sure if I should move it or just leave it be? Thank you.

They are annuals, and will die off each year. It is possible that they will come back from seed, but moving them will not be advised. They do like full sun, though.
