Niko blue in partial sun

I need to move my hydrangeas again. I have many of them, and have moved them for years. They are truly beautiful, buuuuuut. I am running out of shade.

I would like to put them on the east side of the house in the small plot of land that divides our driveway and our neighbor's. They would receive morning sun, then just light for the rest of the day.

Do you think this would be a mistake? I have some lacecap hydrangeas in the small plot of land between the garage and the front door. They face the east, but by being against the wall, I think they may have less sun.

I live in zone 7A, and don't need to worry about freezes or other problems. I just don't know where to put them.

Also, I never divide hydranges, but they create their own plants. You can plant 3, and pull out 6 or 7 when you move them.

Good morning, Sammy. You said that "They would receive morning sun, then just light for the rest of the day."

Do you mean that they would receive indirect light "for the rest of the day"? If so, that would be fine. That is what I have to do here because they get sunscald if allowed to get direct sun after 11am-12pm during the summer time.
