Plant Light Requirements
Plants usually come labeled with their sun exposure requirements.
Measuring sun exposure for plants is not an exact science. The best way to determine sunlight for a specific area is to observe it and write down the time sun hits a certain place. Remember that the sun is higher in the summer and deciduous trees will have leaves so take this into consideration.
There will always be variables such as cloudy days and places where it gets to be 100 degrees in the shade. The definitions below are the generally accepted standards for determining sun exposure in the garden.
- However if a plant is listed as Partial Sun, greater emphasis is put on its receiving the minimal sun requirements.
- If a plant is listed as Partial Shade, the plant will need some relief from the intense late afternoon sun, either from shade provided by a nearby tree or planting it on the east side of a building.
