Glad you found our advice helpful in the past. Let's try to continue that good advice! I think dogwoods and crape myrtles are outstanding landscape trees for your region. You might also consider Eastern Redbud(Cercis canadensis), Flowering Crabapple, Star Magnolia and Tatarian Maple(Acer tataricum). They will remain under 25' at maturity (which is small for a tree). Or, a dwarf weeping cherry tree if you'd like an umbrella shaped canopy on your tree. Best wishes with your new trees.
