Is there anything more prized in the South than ample summertime shade (apart from college football teams, of course)?

Here are 7 shrubs for part shade. (By which we mean they get sun for half the day and shade the other half.)
Not sure what kind of shade? Here’s ahandy postthat spells out the various shade light conditions.
