I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.
That spot is a challenging one to find a blooming plant to fit into. I think the camellias will struggle with the direct sun during the hottest part of the day and I would probably not recommend them for that location. Sun loving bloomers like a semi dwarf crape myrtles would need more light than that brief period to bloom well. You might consider a Chinese Witchhazel. They provide early spring bloom and most will come close to reaching the 10 foot height with some periodic trimming. Otherwise an evergreen shrub would probably be your best option.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
