How is full sun measured?
Similarly one may ask, what does full sun mean?
When you read "full sun," it means that a plant needs direct, unfiltered sunlight for at least 6 hours a day. This is the minimum amount of light a sun-loving plant needs to thrive. As you have noticed, the intensity of sunlight varies depending on the time of day.
Likewise, can full sun plants grow in shade? Full Shade True shade plants, such as many ferns, can perish in too much sun. Filtered light, such as that found beneath a tree canopy, is a good setting for full shade plants. Most full shade plants can tolerate some direct sun in the morning or evening hours, but not mid-day.
