I am looking for a small tree (no more than 6 or 7') with some color to plant in a corner near the house in the flower bed area. Any suggestions?

I'd plant a dwarf Lagerstroemia Indica (Crepe Myrtle): with attractive foliage and large clusters of flowers that can range in color from pink to cranberry to a deep or hot red depending upon variety. Choose a dwarf variety. Or, a weeping ornamental cherry or flowering plum. You can keep any of these about 7' tall with annual pruning. Enjoy!
