You might consider Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia), Hicks Yew (Taxus x media 'Hicksii'), Catawba Rhododendron (Rhododendron catawbiense 'Alba'), Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia), Bottlebrush Buckeye (Aesculus parviflora), Red Chokeberry (Aronia arbutifolia 'Brilliantissima'). For additional interest and to avoid a monoculture, consider using more than one type. When planting, space to allow for spread at maturity and to avoid root-crowding.
