Mrs garden, I did consider suggesting a dogwood for your corner spot. It's the moisture though.......as long as it doesn't dry out too much.
Cnrissie, Chrissie, chrissie......."not exciting for most of the year"? Cornus aurea is a wonderful yellow mound now in my garden....can see it here as I sit in my kitchen typing this....and next to a brown leaved actea brunette it looks superb. And those red stems from October to spring? Fantastic value. Cornus Elegantissima is growing behind berberis atropurpurea nana elsewhere......Green and white attractive leaves behind purple ? These are both great shrubs to grow.
