what flowering evergreen would you recommend?

A very old Rhododendron was just discarded from the front of my house and now the spot is bare. There is direct sun so I should probably look for a different plant to replace it. The spot is about 3 feet wide, and I do not want anything that grows taller than 5 feet high and 4-5 feet wide. It is a small front yard. I prefer it be evergreen but it does not need to flower, although that would be nice.

There are many more but these were a few of my favorites.
