Choosing a specimen plant

Hello everyone, I have a small yard in front of our house. I want to beautify the yard. I want to make it more attractive. I like the idea of a shady yard and I want to try one. I planted the seedlings of flowering plants that are usually seen in a shady yard. I bought some eastern hemlock seedlings from a nursery since I wanted it as the specimen plant in my yard. Eastern hemlock is an evergreen tree or shrub. I find it graceful and the golden-yellow foliage on it’s arching branches make it more attractive. Do you think it will look beautiful as a specimen plant? If it’s not, can you suggest a specimen plant?
