Some good choices for the site you describe include Acer circinatum (vine maple), Acer griseum (paperbark maple), Acer palmatum (Japanese maple), Cercidium (Palo Verde), Cercia (redbud), Chionanthus (fringe tree), Erythrina (coral tree), Albizia julibrissin (silk tree), Laburnum (goldenchain), Sophora japoica (pagoda tree) or Acacia stenophylla (shoestring acacia), Camphor, Ornamental Pear, or Citrus. Only the last three are evergreen. Most grow less than 20' at maturity, but all can be pruned to control size and shape.
