I love these Amy, but have never grown them; which condition suits them best, my soilis acid, and I can provide shade if needed.

That is perfect David my soil is acid approx 6.5 ph but it does vary round the garden .. they are just as happy in the sun mine have spread into the gravel path next to the shrubs directly in the sun they look lovely on a sunny day when they all open their petals to face the sun .. :o) Let me know if you can't find any I'll save you some seedlings !
