Which evergreen shrubs to plant in front of large conifer hedge?

Hi there - I have a large conifer hedge in my garden and a flower bed in front of it, that is currently bare. The flowerbed gets full sun sometimes and shade at other times (depending on time of day/year). I need an evergreen shrub, preferably a flowering one (time of year for flowering not important), that will look nice at a height of about 1 metre - this is to hide the bits of the conifer hedge that have gone brown! I live on the coast, so it gets a bit windy sometimes, but it is not an exposed location as such. As you can probably tell, I am a complete beginner at gardening! Any advice would be very welcome. Thanks .

Trachelospermum jasminoides

I love the idea and look of this plant and was just about to buy it; however I've found out that it doesn't like coastal winds (which we have lots of!). Can anyone suggest something similar (evergreen, with red foliage in winter and flowers in summer)? Thanks.
