Flowering tree suggestions for zone 5a

SnailLover(5a MI)April 24, 2014

I'm looking for a flowering tree for the front yard that will border the driveway and have perennials around it. It'll be in front of a birch tree so looking for a complimentary color. Needs to be hardy for a winter climate and under 20 ft tall. Acidic, sandy soil, partial to mostly sun. I LOVE orange flowers. I've seen some orange flowering trees in the area that I love, but I've never been able to figure out what they are. They appear clustered? If anyone can solve that mystery that would be a bonus.
