There is a huge size difference between the two of those so they're not really interchangable... ?

The Sky Pencils would fare better with afternoon shade in your zone. Also, you'll want to make sure that the soil drains really well since root rot tends to be a problem with them.

The Green Giants should take the western exposure. They're pretty darn adaptable.
