Cotinus, a member of the Sumac family is more bush than tree. C. obovatus with purple leaves require full sun and will mature to 30' high x 25' wide. It does look very cool when in bloom, but not what I think would fit the bill.

Although the Cotinus coggygria is classified as a tree. Height/Spread around 10'-15'.

lets not split hairs, its classified as both a shrub or small multi-trunked tree. your correct about C. coggygria being of smaller size.

If you can locate one you may want to consider a variegated willow on a stander, I doens't flower but it looks cooler without flowers then most flowering trees do with flowers. It is small and compact and can gaurentee that none of his neightbors have them.

also consider a hibiscus or rose of sharon on a stander. It will flower late summer, stay compact but I think it looks ugly when not flowering and is bad if used as a focal point.
