How much sun or shade does the front yard get? For a green shrub in the middle, a green velvet boxwood or a juniper would do a great job. Now for the fun part – the flowering shrubs! If it is a sunny spot, you could plant Campfire Rose, Cobalt-n-Gold Hypericum, Lemon Merignue Potentilla or a spirea. Pink Sparkler Spirea is especially pretty with golden foliage and pink flowers. For a shady spot, try an azalea, White Diamonds or Strawberry Sundae Hydrangea.
