Crepe Myrtle Placement
I know that Crepe Myrtles need full sun... But do they need sun ALL day and afternoon, or is it good for them to have afternoon shade? Let's say they get 7 hours of sun... Is that enough for them to bloom well? I have plenty of space to plant one out in the open, but here is one spot I'd really like to have one right in front of my house, with the hedge plants. So it would be close to the house and only starts to get a bit of shade there at 3pm... Full sun until then. Also, besides the sun exposure issue, would a couple of feet away from the foundation of the house be ok?
