Are there any lavender look alikes that will bloom nicely in 3 hours of sun?

Welcome! I don't know of any, I'm hoping someone else does. There aren't many flowers that will bloom at all with this small amount of sun. One of these would be a flower like impatiens.

Cat mint and Russian sage have similar flowers, but they need much more sun, as do salvias. Most salvias need at least 6 hours of sun.
