Front door shrubs
I've got a variety of suggestions, so you'll have to scan the list and choose what you like. If you're looking for another evergreen, consider Rhododendrons or Yews (Taxus species). There are Rhodos that will stay within bounds with little or no pruning, but Yews may require an annual haircut. Blooming deciduous shrubs include dwarf Lilac (Syringa species), Roses (Rosa species; 'The Fairy' would be spectacular and bloom almost nonstop throughout the season.), or Spireas (Spiraea species; there are both old-fashioned and new varieties that would make great choices).
