Flowering Tree

Want to plant a flowering tree at my parents gravesite. The site is in Zone 6-7 and the soil is poor. There is all-day sun and water by nature only. It also has to have roots which will not harm the grave.
The cemetery recommended a flowering tree, like plum or a Kousa dogwood.
What can you recommend?
Thanks for any advice you can give me.

I would certainly take into consideration the trees that the cemetery recommends. A flowering Plum or Kousa Dogwood would be flowering trees.

Also consider Service Berry, River Birch and or Blue Beech trees.

I would encourage you to visit your local garden center or tree nursery and discuss the planting site and restrictions. They will be able to help you choose a tree suitable to your growing zone.
