You didn't elaborate on the planting site or desired size of the tree, so I'll make several suggestions. Small to medium garden trees for sunny to partly shady sites include Albizia julibrissin (silk tree), Erythrina (coral tree), Prunus (flowering cherry, peach or plum). Laburnum (goldenchain) and Malus (flowering crabapple). Large trees include Liriodendron tulipifera (tulip tree), Magnolia x soulangiana (several flower sizes and colors), Garry ellipitac (coast silktassel) and Styrax japonicus. Good luck with your new tree!
