Alberta Spruce Companions?

I am new to the board and an avid amateur landscaping. I am trying to finish a section on the side of the house that gets Sun until about 2pm. I just planted 4 Alberta Spruce about 3 feet apart and need to fill in the front and around them. Do you have any ideas? I really would like to add some color. To the right of this section are a cistena plum bush, 2 jap silver grass and another cistena plush. to the left of this section is the front right corner of the house which has a blue totem spruce with 4 goldmound spirea circling it.

I would really like to add some knockout roses, but was unsure of the lack of contrast. I also have two dark horse weigala to plant, could use them.

RE: Alberta Spruce Companions?

Are these the dwarf spruce 'Conica' that grow slowly to 7'?

Don't know what a cistena plum bush looks like, but Knockout roses are great against evergreens.
