It looks great! How old is it?

It likes more sun that you think. Mine survived the two days of 106ºF (41.1ºC) temps and all the other very hot days of summer in sun with no burning.

I bought this plant 2011. Probably a couple of years old.
It wasn't doing great in the house and when I moved it outside.....it just went crazy. I know what you mean, it's been in full sun all summer and loves it!

I moved my plant under the Norfolk Island tree for a couple of months, a few years back...it sulked and didn't bloom. So, I moved it back the wall in full sun, where it's been for years and it resumed blooming.

When you read about this plant on the internet, it always says: this plant must be grown in semi-shade or shade, no direct sun. Well, we know this isn't true! :>)

Yes, it needs quite a bit of sun to do well.

My mom has a huge one in her front yard (on the porch) in the San Francisco Bay Area. It faces south and has done very well for more than 15 years in the same place. Seedlings pop up all over the place from her large plant.
