Answer: It's hard to say for sure since I can't see the tree. 'Crimson Queen' can reach 8-10' tall and 12' wide, so it has a lot of growth yet to make. There is a good chance your tree will regrow branches on that side. Carefully trim the broken branches back to the branch collar on the trunk. This summer, spray the leaves once per month with a seaweed/kelp foliar fertilizer. This will help it recover more quickly and put on growth. To replace your tree with a 4' tall specimen would be quite expensive, considering that container-grown plants less than a foot hight can cost around $35-40 via mail order. You can often find stock locally that is cheaper though. Hope this helps you make a decision -- and be careful to prevent further breakage on the tree! Best of luck.
