Hi Peter, My back garden used to be a sunny spot, but now it’s shady almost all day. Perhaps some dappled sun right now in the morning, but shaded until 2:30 or 3:30 and mostly sunny through the evening. I was thinking of replacing the two rose bushes (alive, but with one green branch each!) with hydrangeas. Are hydrangeas a good option? Do you have a different suggestion? Thanks!

Most hydrangeas will do fine in that exposure.  Ninebark is another option…the best thing to do is drop by, read some of the plant tags to see what you like that matches the conditions.  There are also large hosta varieties and other perennials that can be used in the area.
