small tree in shade
I need ornamental trees for each side of my front door. They need to stay small ( up to 10 feet) and they only get sun in the late afternoon hours.

That's a tough one. Most trees that can tolerate shade can only take light to medium shade. I'd try Eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis) or even flowering dogwood (Cornus florida). Japanese maple might be ideal.
