Q.What Type Of Shrub Or Tree Will Grow Under A Black Walnut To Fill In My Privacy Hedge?

the back of my lot has big trees and shrubs that screen out the condos on the street behind. all was going well until the black walnut continued to grow. first a spruce next to it died. I planted a rhododendron 2 years ago as a replacement. silly me. it is now dying. I’m trying to move it today. what would fill in the “green wall” I have tried to make as a screen.ps do you think the rhododendron will live in a new spot?
