Any of the Campanulas good for shade?

Are any of the Campanula species good for shade. I'm looking for things to stick into a woodland border garden that is sort of in a tough situation, sandy loam which can become quite parched during droughts, and also a lot of deer and rabbit pressure.

Campanula is a sun to part shade plant. If they get 6 hours of sun that is fine, but I don't think they are deer and rabbit resistant. I searched the web and came up with these sites. There should be something there you can use

I've learned (through killing many with too much sun) that campanulas - at least in my area of the South - do best with just a bit of dappled MORNING sun and then full shade the rest of the day. The like it moist, too but not boggy. Unfortunately, rabbits seem to love them.
