Alternative for Drift Roses?

I love drift roses, which are essentially dwarf, bushy plants that bloom nicely (dwarf knockout roses). However, I placed several around two oak trees in the front, and they are losing blooms and not doing well. I'm told the reason is that there is too much shade under the oaks, and drift roses need full sun. My other drift roses in full sun are doing very well.

So my question -- does anyone know of anything bushy and blooming like drift roses (also small in height) that do well in partial to mostly shade? My wife likes coral or purple blooms.

Note I live in Houston, Texas.

Really appreciate it.
