The red Florida buckeye, Aesculus pavia, shade tree grows fast into small shade trees that flower brilliantly red in late spring, or the Catalpa tree will work well in your area, as will the orchid tree (Bauhinia). Another fast growing shade tree is Dahlberia. The flowers are small but attract butterflies and the tree grows fast. Hope one of these is just right for your landscape.
