To some extent the answer top your question depends on whether or not the location is shady or sunny all day and what type of soil you have. In a sunny location (either all day or all afternoon) I would suggest low growing junipers or dwarf red or gold barberries, and possibly a smaller variety of crabapple. For a partly shady location (morning sun or dappled light all day) you might try low growing azaleas and a redbud tree.
