Will hydrangea do well in this space?
Its a corner in my yard. Theres a 5 foot wall. And currently there is a 7 by 7 foot Bird of Paradise in the space. I hate it. But it has always been there. I decided I want to rip it out and plant something more appealing. I remembered the giant Hydrangeas up north in the Olympic Peninsula. Giant flowering things of beauty. Being in Southern California I don't expect it to get that big. But I would still like a healthy happy plant. I have a giant pine and a giant amber maple? in my yard that create shade throughout the day. I know that spot gets low light most of the day. I think the sun hits it early in the morning and about an hour before sundown. The rest of the time its shaded and get whatever ambient light is around it. The sun hits all around it. About a foot away from the edge of the Bird of Paradise. Would it do well, or should I consider another plant?
