I would choose a well mannered patio tree. A good patio tree doesn't constantly drop leaves or messy fruit, doesn't have roots that pry up paving or out-compete nearby plants, isn't too tall at maturity, and casts pleasant shade. Some of the best for your zone include Eastern Redbud, Raywood Ash, Ornamental Plum, Ornamental Pear, Pagoda Tree, Japanese Maple, Serviceberry, Crape Myrtle, Russian Olive, and Amur Maple, and Magnolia. Best wishes with your new tree!
