    Zone 6 sounds like the tropics to me, but when I lived in zone 5 I loved laceleaf Japanese Maples.

    I cant really say my top two since I used at least 1 or 2 of each of the following last yr. depending on the site and effect.

    Shade trees- Oaks (red, scarlet and pin)

    Maples (Crimson king,October glory, norway)

    Pears (cleveland select, redspire, chanticleer) in place of brad.


    Flowering trees- Cherry (kwansan, weeping snow and weeping pink)

    Crabapple (indian magic)

    Dogwoods (pink, white, kousa)

    Plum (thundercloud and newport)

    Magnolia (star)

    I like "The" Cooper Beech best, and the Paper Bark Maple holds a close second.
