Nicolai is the big bird.  Give plenty of room as they can get up to thirty feet high in optimal conditions.  Full sun and part shade are fine, but try to buffer from high winds.  The winds tend to tear the leaves giving a messy look.  Also, keep in mind flowers don't appear for about five years after planting
