Tree for wet clay soil

Posted by sdcwy 92111 (My Page) on

I'm having trouble with selection of an evergreen tree/shrub in San Diego. I'd like a plant for my front yard in full sun, poor-draining clay soil, moderate or fast growth to 15-20 feet high, possibly multi-trunked. I'm hoping to find something with an interesting branching structure, like tipuana tipu or ulmus parvifolia. Any suggestions?
