According to a website "They require full sun and a moist, well drained soil
that is supplemented with peat moss or compost."
But, being that it is one of your smaller trees, I think it could survive on
only partial sunlight.
It would help alot to know where you are located, as crape myrtle hardiness
is not universal. And they need full sun and hot summers to bloom well in
areas where they ARE hardy. Full sun is at least 6 hours, 8 is better.

Depends on the climate zone. But in general, in suitable
locations, it will probably bloom, but not much, if it gets
only morning sun. Also, most cultivars of crape myrtle are
susceptible to powdery mildew, which is much worse where they
don't get full sun.
Many plants that are listed as "full sun" do well in part
shade or part sun in (say) U.S. zone 8. Crape myrtle is not
one of them.
