    Design IdeasThe large, pink and white striped flowers make this plant a must for high traffic areas such as walkways, patios and fence lines that are viewing distance from the home. Train onto a trellis or arbor, or allow to sprawl freely on the ground for a more naturalistic woodland look. Add a decorative iron trellis to a container and feature Pink Champagne as the centerpiece in a mixed perennial container garden.

    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
