Would a starndard-form crapemyrtle be smaller than own-root?

10 years ago

Does high budding affect the diameter of a tree's crown?

I have a standard-form Dynamite crapemyrtle. The budding is more than 5 feet high. At the bud union there are 3 branches that belong to the Dynamite, and down from that point it's a different crapemyrtle.

Will the budded Dynamite develop into a smaller crown than if it had been grown as own root?

If so - how much smaller? By a third? A half?
