I live in the Low Country of SC and it gets hot also. I have been talking to locals about the same question. It is about a even split down here. So this is what I am going to do. I live back in the woods. I am clearing my area so I have full sun till about 3 pm then partial shade only in summer. I have a few hardwoods that loose leaves in fall close by . In fall, winter, spring they are not leafed out so full sun till late spring through hot months.
