Is the north side of a house too much shade for clematis? (Particularly, for certain cultivars that are labeled as "full shade" on more than one website?)

I'd like to have a clematis on north side of my house, but as it'd be up against the wall, it wouldn't get much--IF ANY--direct sunlight. Well, I recently came across several cultivars for which SEVERAL websites say can be grown in shade or even FULL shade. Would the north side of a house (with NO TREES nearby) even BE full shade? Would it be TOO MUCH shade even for cultivars LABELED as "full shade"??

I've quite sucessfully grown many different clematis on the north sides of buildings when no shade trees were nearby. They do well in bright shade but not dense shade.
