I planted some full sun perennials in a area that only gets direct sun only first thing in the morning. Is there a way to get more sun with lights or maybe through sun light reflection?

Full sun perennials need at least 8 hours of sunshine a day. Without it, they will eventually become diseased and stop flowering. The best thing to do with your sun-loving perennials is to move them to a sunnier spot and replace them with shade loving perennials. There's really no easy way to provide artificial light to sun loving perennials other than to move them into the sunshine.
