Thank you for your question. The short answer is "no." Below is information from the Arbor Day Foundation that provides details on the requirements for Crape Myrtle.

The Colorado State University Extension does have some good information on trees that will grow well in our area - see link below.

Lastly, you may wish to visit the Denver Botanic Gardens. Lots of lovely trees to see. Might help in making a decision if/when you decide to plant some trees.
