How much sun does mint need to grow?


I just bought a peppermint plant and a orange mint plant, my first herbs and mint plants! I've read a lot about them online and in books, especially how they are invasive! But what seems to confuse me is the amount of light they need? I've read anything from full sun to full shade...I have two places I can put the mint, both in pots, one in the back of the garden that only gets a few hours of sun at best or in a garden by a rose bush with at least 7 hours of sun...any suggestions on where to put it?
