Answer: Roses need full sun or a minimum of six hours of direct sun including the hour of noon, so they would not be a good choice. Azaleas and hydrangeas should grow well in morning sun, however they do need a few hours of direct sun or bright dappled light all day to flower their best. Azaleas will only flower for a week or two in the spring, hyndrangeas typically bloom in mid to late summer.
If you want flowers all season long, you might look at shade tolerant annuals such as impatiens, tuberouse begonias, coleus and caladiums (these last two have foliage color).
Some shade tolerant perennials to try would include hosta, pulmonaria, dicentra, tricyrtis, and lamium. If you planted these five plants you could have color and bloom from spring to fall although each one only blooms for a short while. Ferns would add an additional interest all season due to their lovely foliage texture.
I hope this gives you some ideas.
