|Are there some types of dwarf crepe myrtles that bloom earlier than others? Do they bloom as early as the regular crepe myrtles? Will they bloom with only afternoon sun?|

|Welcome to ATP!
This might not be exactly correct information for you as you have not told us where you are. Please add that information to your profile.
There is a dwarf Crepe Myrtle called Early Bird that blooms about two months before the usual bloom start time. They will bloom with part shade but the flowers might be fewer - I had some that spent their lives under a giant California Pepper tree and they didn't seem to notice.
