My pines are dwarf white, Pinus strobus ‘Nana,’ and do want more sun than it sounds like you have. There are so many choices for the location…and of course all depends on taste. I am partial to the golden Hinoki cypress, Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Crippsii,’ and some of my specimens are growing in bright shade. In fact, they burn in full sun in my experience here. My biggest one gets several hours of afternoon sun; some of the smaller ones get maybe half-day (more in winter). I think of them as sunshine incarnate on even dark days: https://awaytogarden.com/ive-got-sunshine-on-a-cloudy-day Or do you prefer less color, maybe?
