Joyce, a question.  Will this be in deep shade or filtered sun, or on the edge of your massive oak forest where is will get morning or afternoon sun?

1) Heavy Shade - something simple and blue or green - Buckshaw Blue comes to mind, Arch Duke might be good. Even Nigrescens, if you are looking for an upright, vase shape... 
2) Morning Sun - Sea Thunder, Sagae, Regal Splendor, or Lakeside Shore Master, Captain Kirk
3) Some afternoon Sun - Lakeside San Kao, Lakeside Symphony, Lakeside Prissy Miss, Sunpower, Golden Sculpture...

Or, in our neck of the woods, lots of folks might like Silver Anniversary, Olive Bailey Langdon, Sun King, Russell O'Harra or .... Moonlight Sonata, Slick Willie, or yadda, yadda, yadda....

Good luck!  (Like you need ANY pointers from us!)
