moving plants and grow lights

Well, today was a day to rearrange some plants!  I have had a blue hibiscus
standard that I've been planning on planting for weeks now, so I go it
placed in a front garden bed.  Moved an azalea of unknown color out of that
bed and put it under the front tree (where I had moved two others almost 2
