I received a Purple Magic Crapemyrtle shrub as a gift. I know it needs full sun, but will it work if I plant it in partial sun?

Full sun is best for crapemyrtles.

However, I have one on the east side of my house where it gets morning sun and afternoon shade and it is doing fine. And, it flowers earlier in the summer than the one on the west side of my house!

Thanks for writing!
