Planting in two 10x2 foot garden areas flanking stone steps

Hi all,

Looking for some planting ideas to fill in two 2' x 10' planting areas that flank the stone steps to my covered back porch. Pictures attached.

My wife and I would like something relatively simple to take care of but that will still give some pop to the backyard, which right now just had green columnar oak beech trees, a red maple and some dawyck fagus beech trees flanking the pool area (see 3D rendering).

We live in Toronto so winter is a factor. She is not a huge fan of putting hydrangea's there as they tend to sprawl considerably, but we would consider it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
