It's an acid lover paper flowers.....I guess you knew anyway.
The emerging colourful leaves are easily scorched in sun....worse, when they change to cream, before turning green, they cannot resist the sun at all.
I grow a couple of varieties...both in dappled shade.
This means in the lee of taller plants to protect from sun..a tall grass for example.
They are great in pots but need reasonable moisture
In total shade I think the colourful leaves would be less dramatic.
