I would suggest Lady of Shalott, a tough, disease-resistant David Austin rose with apricot-colored blooms. Here are some photos I took on Tuesday, September 5. This rose was planted in the spring of this year.

You can find other disease-resistant David Austin roses that will grow in shade here:

Lady of Shallot is probably the best suggestion. Susan Williams-Ellis can work, very well too.

Yes Steve I looked into SWE too it looks pretty
Maybe this one will go under the shade and lady will be in the front
Thanks for the advice
