I believe you can plant hydrangea, forsythia and hibiscus near black walnut. Many trees, though they may reach over 5 ft., are compatible as well: arborvitae, flowering dogwood and Japanese maple are a few. This article may offer additional suggestions too: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/nut-trees/black-walnut/black-walnut-compatible-plants.htm
