Can Amelanchier Ballerina be planted in shade?

Would a small Amelanchier Ballerina shrub be happy in shade? (seems quite bright shade, if you know what I mean!)



It can take partial shade but will look better in full sun.

Good luck Caz - remember humans write the books and read them - plants can't read and frequently do well in situations they are not meant to.
