    Design IdeasIn summer, this great little tree produces very potently colored flowers that make powerful statements in the landscape. A gorgeous high-profile street tree that offers civic beauty without the litter and invasiveness of more commonly-used street trees. An equally good shade tree for city yards with a bonus of flowers and fall color. Its size makes it perfect for light shading around decks and patios, to dress up lawn-edge planters, or as a single stunning tree for the front-yard lawn. Frame a long driveway with several for a formal statement. Best of all, it is reasonably drought resistant.
