Purple leaf plum trees are great for the desert. There are several cultivars and 'Thundercloud' has the most upright branching habit if your space is narrow. Check the cultivar - some are smaller than others. They bloom beautifully each spring. Evergreen Elm might be a good choice; Orchid trees are small and produce lots of springtime blooms. Best wishes with your new tree.
