Answer: First of all, glad you like the website! Second, you garden sounds lovely. I especially like the Elizabeth Magnolia; it's such a graceful tree. If the flower bed is in full sunshine, dwarf boxwoods would grow nicely there. If you think you want some seasonal bloom, you might consider Cytisus x 'Lena', the Lena Scotch Broom. This variety has a low-mounding growth habit (about 3' tall and wide). It's covered with lemon-yellow blooms in late spring. A third suggestion is Hebe pinguifolia. This plant grows to 3' tall and wide, oval blue-gray leaves and white flowers.
Hope one of these suggestions appeals to you!
