What would you put here?

Full morning sun and needs some color or drama. I almost didn't buy this house because of lack of curb appeal. But the backyard pretty much sold me because it's 1/3 acre and I've never had this much room to garden! Not to mention the wildlife due to the layout of back yard.

And does anyone know what the two mounding shrubs are? I've seen them before, but have no idea what they are. I've since planted a peony between the smallest mounded shrub, kind of behind the bulbs. But I wouldn't mind have some summer color somewhere in there.

I didn't realize the shrub on the right at end of porch was a honeysuckle (possibly invasive kind). Posted that to name that plant forum. If it is, it may very well be coming out!

Any and all suggestions will be most welcome!
