Answer: If space is a concern, you might try a semi-dwarf orange tree, or an ornamental pear tree (which has an upright columnar growth habit but does not bear fruit). Both are evergreen trees. There is one semi-evergreen crape myrtle: Crape Myrtle ?Catawba? is one of the best purple flowering selections available. Displays large, long lasting clusters actually masses of dark purple crepe-like flowers in summer. Handsome foliage has bronzy cast in spring, bright green in summer, orange-red fall color. Mildew resistant. Moderate-growing to rounded dome 15 feet tall, 14 feet wide.
Hope this information helps you choose just the right tree for your landscape.
