You are actually in zone 9a. This means that you can take advantage of some citrus trees, as well as many subtropical trees. I fear that it would be too hot for many magnolias, although some do well. A camellia will be better suited than this. I would urge you to take a look as some trees for the zone 9a, as you can find many possibilities for this area.
