Would anyone have a list of, say, the 10 longest flowering shrubs that grow here?

Or else, suggestions of flowering shrubs with a very long season.

Her nibs prefers evergreen shrubs as well.

viburnum tinus.... white flowers from now until March. Cornus alba 'Sibirica', no flowers now but lovely red stems for winter. Salvia microphylla, bright red flowers late summer autumn. Crab apples you get two seasons with .. flowers in spring and tiny red apples in autumn, although not a shrub, but a tree...well worth it.
