What kind of clematis for partial shade in 5a (Denver)

I need a few clematis plants to go on a northern exposure in my back yard. It seems to get alot of shade during most of the summer.

I have sweet autumn in a nearby area and I would be happy to use more of them but I was told that the sweet autumn would not do well in shaded area.

Dr. Ruppel was suggested to me but I haven't found the information about that variety yet.

Nelly Moser, Dr. Ruppel, any of the light/pink Type IIs seem to do well with some shade, they fade badly in full sun..
