How much sun is needed for miniature roses?

Hello everyone,

I want to plant some miniature roses in front of our building. But the way the building is oriented we only get the sun in the morning. The rest of the day it is full of shade. How much sun is required to get some nice miniature roses?

Same as for other roses, we say a "minimum" of 6 hours per day during the main growing season. They can sometimes get by with a little less, but they might not bloom as well or grow as tall.
