I think you need to review the above article where it says it requires protection from the sun. I have one that has grown *very* well in full sun for over 10 years and have seen any number in other people's gardens doing just as well with no shade at all. Other references I have read on the Internet agree that it is a full sun bush. Also they seem to do well in pretty much any type of ground, including clay, so I'm not so sure about the not liking wet roots part.
