This pot is front and center at our house and is in full sun. My plans morphed a bit when I couldn't get the plants I originally wanted, but it's grown in nicely. I like the dark foliage of the Dahlia with the deep purple Petunias. My only complaint is that the lime green Talinum never got very big so it's hidden in the back with the Pennisetum (which isn't blooming yet). Otherwise, very satisfied with this one.
