Before you plant, be aware of whether you will be planting in full sun (6 hours or more of direct sun), full shade (less than 4 hours of direct sun a day) partial shade/partial sun (4-6 hours of direct sun a day). If a plant isn't thriving where you planted it, then don't be afraid to move it to a better location rather than giving up on it, says Wade.
