Glad that there was no problem with  diseased  in your old tree.


That is not easy to get a low growing, but wide spreading tree...with good colour.


You maybe should look at  shrubs.


How about Viburnum plicatum tomentosum Mariesii..

Or Viburnum plicatum Pink Beauty.

Or Cornus controversa variegata.

Or Sorbus sargentiana...a tree.... will gow taller than 7ft ...but very slow...flowers, berries and stunning autumn colour.

May I suggest you look at all the local gardens and parks to see what grows  happily in your area.
