Amelanchiers are wonderful....a simple spring blossom ( not as "suburban" as cherry blossoms ) and good autumn colour. A good tree for the smaller garden too.

The red oak is a fantastic tree though relatively slow growing you will still need to give it space. Paulownia has spectacular flowers but will not flower until many years after planting also the frost will damage the flower buds ( I got caught with a tulip tree years ago expecting instant flowers that was 7 years ago and no flowers yet ! ) I have an Amelanchier and although beautiful when in bloom the flowers on mine last no more than two weeks, maybe its the wind. Put up a pic of the Acer leaf and someone here might be able to throw some light on the subject. All the best.

Parotia ( Persica) is quite good at autumn colour, tends to hold on to leaves quite a bit, evenas their color changes.

Can be more expensive at 70-80 euro for 7-8 foot tree
