Is Rising Sun Redbud actually full sun?

So I've read many of the posts on here on this topic, and many other sources. There seems to me to be a large disagreement about sun tolerance of the Rising Sun cultivar despite all the tags saying full sun. I have a spot for a small tree that's sunny until 7 pm in the summer but gets plenty of water in 8b north Texas. What's the likelihood it would fry in a spot like that? What other similar alternatives, besides crape myrtles, are there? I've looked at flowering plumbs but they seem to be not long lived.
