Sycamores look nice in the winter as well, that striking bark.

Honorable mention to several varieties of crepe myrtle for their growth habit, handsome bark, and fragrant (one of ours) flowers.

Sweetgums had the best fall foliage when I lived down south. They're kinda maple shaped in the leaves, too.

Especially when they're not on your property.

Beautiful trees ;

In older areas there are hundreds of Jacraranda, with purple-blue flowers.



In my own yard, I have a native Franjipani, beautiful golden flowers.

Not a tree, but my favourite shrub/ plant, a Bird of Paradise.

I like cherry blossoms in the spring and evergreen trees in the winter. I don't really have favorites for summer or fall.

I love cherry and almond blossoms.

I forgot to mention; I have a full fence of Jasmine, which I have allowed to grow on the ground a bit.Love the scent and it can be dried and added to tea. A lot like the image
