We live in Grapevine, Texas - a suburb of Dallas / Ft. Worth.

I am trying to replace some bushes that had died as the trees have since grown and turned this section of the yard into almost full shade.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a full shade bush or shrub that will grow in this climate?

They are to be used for more provacy than anything else, so no real picky on appearance. Just something that will grow quickly and survive in full shade.
