I have 2 sets of boxwoods and in between I had planted these 2 Golden Ruby barberries. Thinking that they will grow to about same size as boxwoods at maturity and will give contrast against evergreen boxwoods. But these barberries are going no where and are not growing so I am going to take them out.

Do you guys have any suggestions what I can plant- or should I just plant 2 more boxwoods in the space? was hoping for some contrast, may be something that does not flower but has variegated/ interesting pattern etc.

Any ideas?

I'd mix a few dwarf hollies in there because they are evergreen all year long and easy to grow.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

I think Hollies are not rated for zone 5b. Furthermore, they will grow 5-6 ft tall/ wide. The space I have can take something that can go 3-4ft x 3-4ft. Cannot be more than that... its in between the boxwoods and equidistant. So same space.
