I am looking for a 5 - 6 foot high shrub, preferably one that flowers, to fill in a corner that gets about 3 hours of sun a day. What would you reccomend?

There are lots of azaleas and rhododendrons that would do well in this spot so long as the soil is humusy, acidic and well drained. Others to consider are Symphoricarpos (Snowberry, Coral Berry), dwarf flowering almond, barberry, or a bush honeysuckle. Check with local nurseries, since stock grown in your area is best adapted to your conditions. Enjoy!
