What are good plants to place in front of boxwoods?

by Patti
I have a row of boxwoods in front of my porch. I want to add color, but don't know what would work best. I live in Southeast Texas (Zone 8 or 9). Any suggestions?

    It has full sun. I would love perennials.

    The Aurea plant complements the boxwood’s shrub with its short, pyramidal leaves. Other suggested companion plants include the Rheingold and the Sunkist plants that form an exotic pattern with their golden foliage against the green, velvety background of boxwoods.

    I added dwarf Nandina in front of my Boxwoods/Love the Red Color, then added the small Mondo grass in front of the Nandina, making 3 layers. The small Nandina doesn't get tall enough to interfere with the Boxwood height, and with the greenery on both sides is pleasing to the eye...for ME. Just occasional pruning is all that is necessary to keep this 'scape looking great!

    My zone is 6, and this planting in front of my porch gets morning sun.
