Annual for partial shade to total | More All of the Happiness of the Home and the Petunias | U of I Extension

In general terms, partial shade refers to places that remain in the shade between 4 to 6 hours per day. Typical are places that receive the morning sun or east orientation or those who receive the light that seeps through the trees. The afternoon sun is also within the parameters of the partial shade but, as it is very intense and radiates heat, the exposed areas usually require more attention and watering. The areas of total shade are those that do not receive the direct sun, they only receive indirect light (examples: the north side of the constructions or under the trees without leaves).
