Where to plant hydrangeas in Calgary? (in shade vs. full sun)

Roger Smith

I'm from Calgary and planning on planting 10 hydrangeas across a south facing fence (it gets about 3 feet of shade during the afternoon and gets 5 hours of morning sun). I'm wondering if its a good idea to plant in the shade or plant in full sun instead (Incrediball, Annabelle, Quick Fire, Fire Light, Lime Light, Incrediball Blush).

I know on the Proven Winner's page it says you can plant in full sun for northern locations, so I'd be happy to get some feedback from people with hydrangeas in Zone 3, from Alberta or from Canada in general.
