which crape myrtle variety is this?
is anyone a crape expert? can someone identify the variety of crape that we have here? our new build contract specified the type we wanted (choctaw, only because a light bubble gum pink wasn't available so he talked us into the choctaw). The landscaper planted the wrong variety not once but twice (leaving the tags identifying them as Sioux) and then finally planted these before they were in bloom and at least wisened up to take the tags off the trees so if they were the wrong variety, we couldn't tell right away. :)
i'm done griping about the landscaper, but we'd like to plant 5 matching crapes on the opposite property line and just need to know which type to buy if he didn't plant what he said he planted.
appreciate your help!
here's the bark (today):

the up close photo of the blooms i took today look way too saturated in color so i am not posting it. if that's critical to make a determination i can take another photo.
