Not very much sun would be fine though it would do OK on the north side.

If you want to google it, call it Lamprocapnos spectabilis. The name changers have been around that family.

Are you looking for native plants only Peanuts?

A mower is a very good tool for keeping down the weeds once the bulbs have died back
