When selecting trees, be sure to match them to your planting conditions. Also, be sure to select them according to all characteristics rather than just flowers. Select for attractive fruits, bark and fall color as well. Here are some suggestions:
redbud
golden raintree
crabapple
star magnolia
saucer magnolia
serviceberry
ornamental cherry
corneliancherry dogwood
hawthorns
Japanese pagodatree
Korean mountainash
Japanese tree lilac
Pekin lilac
Fringetree
Pagoda dogwood
Carolina silverbell

Good luck!
