East facing lawn - Grass seeds

Hi, my backyard lawn is East facing. We get Sun in morning only. Should I be buying grass seeds marked just for Sun or shade or mix of sun & shade ?
I am more inclined towards sun grass seeds as I would get grass seeds with high % of Kentucky Bluegrass. Btw I live in Alberta.

I don't buy grass seed based on sun . I buy it based on the type of seed (the more Kentucky blue grass the better). As far as I know, for grass seeds to germinate it's based on water, soil and temperature, not necessarily sun. In fact, the part of my lawn that gets the most is looks the worse as it dries out. If you still want to get one that specifies sun - get sun/shade mix

If I go with sun/shade mix, then I get extremely low % of Kentucky Bluegrass seeds (less than 20%). As mentioned in OP, if I get Sun ones, then I get about 75% Kentucky Bluegrass seeds.

I have shortlisted following 2 grass seeds...any advice which ones is best:
Option 1: Scotts Turf Builder Bluegrass Sun Coated Grass Seed
