Best Tree for my area?

I live in Melbourne Florida which is down by Cape Canveral where the rockets go up. Which flowering ( not to large at full height) tree would be good for my area? I do not live on the beach so it does not need to be tolerant to salt, but I would like some choices that don't need a lot of water.

I suggest you go to our Plant Encyclopedia on this website and do an ADVANCED search. Plug in your criteria to see what plants come up as suggestions. I don't believe we have a lot of very tropical stuff in the encyclopedia yet, but it's worth a shot. Otherwise, I suggest you tour some local nurseries to see what's available in your area."
