Yes you certainly can. Rosebushes perform at their very best with lots of sun but some roses perform quite nicely with only partial sunshine, one of those happens to be the Knockouts. For a red blooming rosebush that looks alot like the red Knockout, try to find a rose named Winnipeg Parks. It is very hardy and far less likely to have problems with the Rose Rosette Virus. Not all Knockouts have problems with Rose Rosette but more so than when they first came out.
