Viburnums seem to do well in NB. They respond well to pruning and thrive on neglect after the first year. https://unlgardens.unl.edu/viburnums
Yeah, the standard cheapo boxwoods that builders plant, do look awful after a few years. I have replaced nearly all of mine. But there are some boxwoods that are resistant to that, I have several that look very nice, and they are 15 or 20 years old now.

Here are the two I planted beside my shed. Totally maintenance free.
