    Thanks, AlainK, the fact that Butterfly does well in a wide range of conditions, makes it all the more the desirable as you point out.

    I've just planted my Butterfly in the ground in half shade, but it spent 3 years in a pot in full sun, never ever had burnt leaves, so I agree with AlainK

    I have orange dream under a very large evergreen Magnolia grandiflora, it's about 9-0" tall and positively thrives with great colour all year in quite heavy shade.
