Still unclear on shade - part shade
I am trying to figure out what kind of shade I have in my side yard, which faces East but is between two houses. It is shady in the morning as the sun rises behind the house next door. Then about 11 a.m. the sun hits the garden, and as it crosses the sky, the garden gets moving sunlight for about 3 hours, with no part of the area getting the full three hours of sun. Then, it's in shade again. So - am I dealing with part shade? I have read many definitions of shade and I'm still stumped. I don't know what to plant! Thanks!!
