Some good choices for the site you describe include Acacia podalyriifolia (Pearl Acacia), Sapium sebiferum (Chinese Tallow Tree), Podocarpus gracilior (Fern Pine) and Geijera parviflora (Australian Willow). Larger trees include Osmanthus fragrans (Sweet Olive) and Schinus terebinthifolius (Brazilian Pepper Tree). Complete descriptions can be found in Sunset Western Garden Book, along with pictures of each. Enjoy!
