Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) exposure

What kind of light is best for a Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis)? I found three different suggestions (see below).

The Texas Native Plants Database,
http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/ornamentals/nativeshrubs/cephalanthusoccident.htm, states "Exposure: sun, partial sun, shade"

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center website, http://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=CEOC2, states "Light Requirement: Part Shade , Shade"

The Plant Fact Sheet on the USDA Plants database,
http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=ceoc2, states "Buttonbush is best adapted to shorelines and swamps with saturated soil and full sunlight."

Thank you for your help.

area rug, home decorating

I am looking at runner area rugs for a hallway that is roughly 3 feet by 16-1/2 feet.

I found these two which are the same pattern and rug in different colors:
They are 2'2" x 15'.



This is a small 900 square foot home and the hallway runs from the living/dining/kitchen area to the laundry room. On the sides of the hallway are the bathroom on one side, and 2 10x10 bedrooms on another side.

I like the darker blue, but I'm thinking the more subdued lighter blue rug might be better. Would the darker blue be too overpowering in such a small space? I know it is hard to say without seeing the place, but what would your first instinct be? Which do you immediately prefer?

Are there other hallway decorating/colors that you would suggest depending on which rug is purchased?

Thank you very much.
