Hydrangeas typically prefer part sun to dappled shade. But some varieties can take full sun. I looked up average weather for your area and it doesn't get all that hot or cold. So a hydrangea may do fine. If you want evergreens for the front, consider dwarf boxwood, inkberry, mountain laurel. Decidous shrubs include abelia (semi evergreen), ninebark.

Hostas on the other hand prefer mostly shade. An east or north exposure would be better for hosta.
