    If your home faces north, Azaleas are beautiful, along with Rhododendrons, and Pieris.

    If it faces another direction, Lilacs, Spireas, Hibiscus, Hydrangea, Mountain Ash, and many more...

    A good place to see different varieties:

    It depends on where you are. If you're in Arizona or a very warm climate, oleanders are beautiful year round and they flower. They also grow quickly and come in 2 or 3 different colors.

    If you live in the Midwest, then I would suggest rhododendrens or azaleas. They both bloom in the spring and are gorgeous.

    Here in Missouri everyone is going crazy over "knock out roses." They're maintenance free compared to regular roses, bloom all summer, and are bushy. The blooms are not like a regular rose, and they're very easy to take care of. They love sun and grow fast.

    Good luck!

    In Las Vegas, I have had excellent luck with climbing roses and rose shrubs.

    How about azaleas, hydrangeas, lantana, camellias, star jasmine, gardenias, butterfly bush. I can't think of too many more.
