Looking for small crape myrtle

Bob_B(Sunset 14, Ca.)February 23, 2011

I want a small crape myrtle 8-10' that will do well in Sunset zone 14. Sunset suggests four: Hopi, Pecos, Sioux, and Zuni. I don't care about the color as long as it is clear, not muddy. I've seen a lot of muddy flowered crape myrtles. Anyone have experience with any of these (or other suggestions)?

The only way to be sure of the color quality is to buy when in bloom. Here in Calistoga a crape myrtle comes up from the ground almost from a crack in the side walk with a beautiful red bloom. If I had the nerve I would go back at night and dig it up, but instead I just enjoy it every year when it shows up again. Sunsets suggestions are good Bob, as they are also mildew resistant, but mildew should not be a problem where you live. Al

I have some seedlings and saplings you're welcome to.
Not clear on whether you would think their clear or muddy.
I'm in socal.
