There are lots of flowering shrubs to choose from. How about Tartarian Dogwood (Cornus alba 'Sibirica'), Enkianthus (Enkianthus campanulatus), Dwarf Fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii), Mountain-laurel (Kalmia latifolia), Mountain Andromeda (Pieris japonica), or Japanese Snowball (Viburnum plicatum tomentosum 'Mariesii').

Best wishes with your garden!
