    We have an area to plant around a condo assoc. sign that is approximately a 25' circle that at this time has 3 large pines that are being removed. The association wants the trees removed stumps ground and area replanted with smaller type plants. We are considering something like PJM rhodes and maybe some hardy mums for fall color. The question I have is, will these type of plants or whatever others may work will be ok in half day AM full sun and ok to be put in the acidic soil and ok to be planted later into late summer early fall time of year ? We are in the Pittsburgh area. The condo sign will be basically located to the center and rear of area. Thanks for any ideas.

    You just described excellent growing conditions for rhododendrons and most other broadleaf evergreens (evergreens with leaves rather than needles - euonymus, holly, azalea, ...). Hydrangeas and daylilies will do well and flower in those conditions to add summer color.
