Help me pick a Crape Myrtle variety
I am having a hard time selecting a crape myrtle for the new garden in front of my house (see picture), mainly because of growing height. I'm worried that a Tonto might not grow enough, whereas a Sioux or Yuma might end up being too big. Our goal is curb appeal to sell in 3-5 years.
Several people have told me to just get a bigger one and lop it off to the height I want every year, but I'm not sure if I'm a fan of crape murdering or not, so I'm trying to be responsible and pick one that suits the area.
Blocking the window is not a huge concern, since it is a guest bedroom, but would this affect curb appeal? If I get the bigger Crape, the trunks wouldn't block the window, but then the tree might block too much of the house?
All opinions welcome.
