I'm looking for a small tree (max 15' tall/7' wide), preferably blue or purple flowers that does well in Sacramento, Ca. Thanks!

Only two candidates come to mind - Mountain Laurel (Sophora secundiflora) which is actually a large shrub but is often trained as a single trunked tree. It has fragrant purple flowers in the spring. The second is a small tree, usually to 12' tall, called Bauhinia Orchid tree. The flowers are purple and white, just like an orchid. Hope these suggestions are helpful.
