Hydrangeas or Evergreens?
I want to plant a shade garden along the back of my house. It is northern exposure, but does get some late afternoon sun. I just moved into my house in January. So I am not sure if it will get stronger afternoon sun as the sun gets higher and the days get longer. Right now the sun is more dappled through trees. I would like a shrub or two to break up the straight run of the back of the house. I was thinking of hydrangea, which is what a women at the nursery suggested. I would like something that flowers, but an evergreen would be nice too. IÂd like opinions / suggestions. I am worried a hydrangea will not bloom well here, or that it wonÂt be able to take the afternoon sun. Especially, if the area gets more direct afternoon sun in the summer.
