I'm so jealous! Your place sounds wonderful! As long as you keep pests in check, and you have areas that get full sun 8-10 hours per day, roses should thrive in that environment. Roses need sun in order to set flower buds. They also need a fairly large pot or growing area, such as a half whiskey barrel or better, to grow well. There are other colorful flowering plants that do well in diffuse light and partial shade - many tropical flowering vines are adapted to blooming under the thick canopy of rainforests.
