Looking for small, white flowering shrub

I'm new to this forum and am hoping you all can help! I am looking for some short (2-3 ft max) shrubs that have white flowers. We built a house last summer and this year we begin the landscaping projects. We have a front porch that is about 18 inches off the ground, so I want some shrubs to go in front of it but nothing that will grow to be too high. I love the look of annabelle hydrangea but am afraid they will grow to be too tall. Any ideas? Are there any hydrangeas that aren't super big?

Thank you!

Hydrangea quercifolia 'Pee Wee' might be a candidate for you.

You could also try Little Lime, Little Lamb or Bobo hydrangea.

I recently planted a group of 'Bombshell' hydrangeas that I purchased in the fall and wintered over in pots. They are really taking off....tons of branching. These hydrangeas are supposed to reach only 36" with white panicle flowers. I can't personally comment on their flowering, but am hopeful for a nice display later in the season. I've seen lots of nice pics of it on the internet, but have also heard mixed results on this board regarding this hydrangea. Time will tell. I'm hopeful.
