Shrubs eh? Lonicera dioica for sure. Maybe try Ceanothus americanus, Ptelea trifoliata, Aesculus glabra, Viburnum rafinesqueanum or V. acerifolium.

I know his property has oaks and maples already, and there are a lot of conifers in the area (I don't know what kinds they are). The region is fairly heavily wooded, where the farmers and developers haven't been at work. Lots of ailanthus, as always.

I appreciate all of the advice. Asters are a great idea.

They absolutely get lake effect snow. It can be very impressive at times. One of the reasons we live in NC instead.
