More thoughts on shrubs

I did some more research on Enkianthus and Fothergilla and even though I am sure they are gorgeous shrubs I think they just are not fitted to our location.  They want quite acid soil and plenty of water.  At heart I am a northern gardener, that is for sure. 
I did a walk around outside and decided the only place that might need more shrubs is the far back corner.  We are still waiting to see how the lilacs do there.  That area as a whole is still problematic.  I did not make much headway there this year with the restructuring after the arbor came down.  I am thinking dwarf fruit trees might be a better way to go.
