Hibiscus 'Syriacus'

We have a North-East facing garden bordered in the main by 6' fence panels. My wife would like to put an Hibiscus on the east facing side which will only get sun in the morning during the summer and will be in complete shade from mid August to May.
I'm not convinced 'Syriacus' will grow/flourish there but my Sister-in-law has managed it in her garden.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this or suggestions as to alternate varieties of Hibiscus that might do well?
Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think...

    If your wife is keen on having loads of flowers she'd do better to find a spot in full sun.   It will grow in partial shade but not be as floriferous as it would be in full sun.
