Suggestions for full shade evergreen shrub

I'd like to have a shrub underneath my tulip poplar tree, close to the house. It's full shade / dappled sun during Spring and Summer, part sun during Autumn and Winter. There's a sprinkler nearby, so water isn't an issue.

Since it's close to the house, I don't want it to be more than 3' tall or it'll block the bay window. But it'll be at the back of the garden, so it needs to be taller than the hostas.

And... I need it to be evergreen :-O Preferably flowering or with colorful leaves, so that I don't just have a huge blanket of green for most of the year.

I'm in zone 7A.

Any suggestions?
