Suggestions for open growth hibisxus

Hi there,
We moved to this beautiful but neglected old house in December, and my daughter at once chose a place for her shady fairy garden. Good idea, except the site she chose is not at all shady 9 months out of the year! All her violets are suffering under a temp shade lattice.

My question is this. I think a small (our yard is quite small) tree, or a shrub pruned into an open form tree shape, will be best in the long term. My girl loves flowers and fancy plants, I wonder if anyone can advise me?

Requirements: NW exposure, sheltered from wind, sun in spring and summer hot enough to ripen peaches, in San Jose , CA (central-willow glen area)
