Viburnum x Juddii

Would Viburnum x Juddii be okay in the shade of a north fence where it gets little to no direct sun?

    Most early flowering shrubs are happy in shade.

    Cheers. I popped into a very small nursery this afternoon and spent so long chatting with the owner I felt I ought to buy something. Couldn't resist a nice specimen of this plant!

    Viburnum x juddii will grow in shade.
    But are happiest in deep rich loamy soil in sun or semi-shade/light shade.
    If in deep shade it may not ripen the wood to give good flowering.
    I would re consider.

    have judii which flowers profusely. It has no overhead shade but is in a roughly east facing spot with an 8 ft hedge at its back and an 8 ft hedge to the north of it and a stand of leylandii to the south of it about 10ft away. So not the sunniest of spots.
