Tree to complement Natchez Crape Myrtle

I am looking for suggestions for a tree to group with 2 Natchez Crape Myrtles. I'd like the tree to be in the 15-25' range (maybe up to 30') and it should do well in full sun, but other than that, completely open to ideas!

RE: Tree to complement Natchez Crape Myrtle

It depends really on how much room you have, whether you want a deciduous or evergreen tree, do you want flowers and if so at what time of year, etc. Stewartias are really nice, and also have exfoliating bark. Styrax blooms much earlier with little fragrant bells. Serviceberries are lovely in spring and fall, and good for wildlife (people can eat the berries too). Be more specific and maybe we can narrow down the list!
