When Is It Too Late to Trim Crepe Myrtles

Our nine crepe myrtle trees have reached a height of about 35 feet. They are keeping sun out of our vegetable garden. We want about 10 to 12 feet trimmed off. I am very aware of NOT ruining the trees by trimming too much. It is April and there is a lot of green, but no flowers, even close. Is it too late to trim without hurting the tree? If the trees bloom somewhat less this year, that is not a problem.
