Siberian iris grow best when they receive at least six hours of sun each day. They tolerate some shade and may produce flowers, only fewer of them, even if sun is limited to four hours. We don't know of a Siberian iris variety that is more shade tolerant than others.

The following website lists Siberian iris varieties, any of which might be suitable for your purpose:
