    I just watched a video of good shade plants, one of which was the Pineapple sage; however, when I looked this plant up, it seems like it likes Full Sun conditions.

    Anyone grow Pineapple Sage in the shade or partial sun conditions? How does it do?

    Yes roadrunner, I do and it is just starting to flower....it is a very late variety to flower.
    For sure, it needs good drainage and full sun but needs not to dry out completely esp if in pots.
    In sun or partial shade I think it is unlikely to flower. It is also extremely tender so cuttings are essential. Take them now if not already done :)

    I just bought one of these plants (Pineapple Sage) yesterday, it's only about a foot high (30cm). I'm going to plant it in full sun conditions; however, I've read that it's cold hardy down to about 25 deg f (-4C), but I've also read you shouldn't plant until spring...

    I'm sure it won't get any colder than 25 deg, but we are suppose to get at least one more cold front coming in a couple days (this weekend) and lasting at least a week.

    Any recommendations on putting it in the ground or bringing it indoors at night until it gets a little warmer?


    Edit: BTW, the temps (night time low temps) in my area are expected to hover (give or take) around 32 deg f (0 C) during this next cold front.
