Landscaping for the front of my house

In the front next to my house, I am planning on re-landscaping with new plants. This area is between the house and my sidewalk. I have a large holly tree on the corner closest to the front porch. I am looking for some suggestions of what I can use in the garden that is low maintenance, colorful but drought tolerant. Can you give some suggestions? I live in Clayton, NC which is in Zone 7B.

I suggest you visit our Plant Encyclopedia on this website and do an Advanced Search (the button isn't always easy to notice), plugging in your criteria and zone information and you should get a list of possible plants.
