I just love this plant. The second year, it had a setback, where it got eaten by scale, but with care and paraffin oil spray during winter, it is coming back nicely. Vertrees says it can take full sun, which also helps develop the nice orange color. However, I find that mine does eventually burn, at least when grown in a container, if given too much hot sun.
