Brad Monroe

Hong Kong Orchid Tree - Bauhinia blakeana
Fast growth and spectacular blooms always attract attention but not suitable for high pH soils.

Crape Myrtle Tree - Lagerstroemia indica
Better inland than on the coast. It is hard to beat the Crape Myrtle for spectacular summer color in the hot inland areas.
Additional Details

Purple or Pink Trumpet Tree - Tabebuia impetiginosa
Slower growth than some trees but flower show is a traffic stopper.
