Consider some variety of Raphiolepis. New foliage is pink, eventually
turning green. In the spring, the plants can be covered with white or
pink flowers. There are dwarf varieties of R. indica; on the other hand
R. 'Majestic Beauty' can grow quite large.
I found that Photinia fraseri grows too vigorously, requiring constant
trimming. I trim my R. indica about once every 3-5 years.
