Crape Myrtle, Green Giant Arborvitae, Yoshino Cedar?

Hi there, I'm a landscape designer. I use multi-stemmed Crape Myrtles, Green Giant Arborvitaes and Yoshino Cedar (Cryptomeria) a lot in my designs. Please see attached photos of the trees I use. I've gone through the plant material and can't see these trees. What do you recommend I should do? Someone told me if I play around certain trees I might get close results. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi Rad, Thank you. Are those Japanese Angelicas in Lumion you use as replacement for Crype Myrtles? I think if I can play with color of these trees, they might be just fine.

Yes Indeed. 
Japanese Angelicas. 
The leaves are a little large but...that is what is available.

You could use the option of those plants as mages on 2D planes and also as Billboard objects.  This is suitable for more distant plants where a 3D plant is not required because of the camera paths.
