First Editions® Midnight Magic™ Crape Myrtle

Lagerstroemia 'PIILAG-V' PP25,925

Height: 4-6'
Width: 4-6'
Exposure: Full sun
Zone: 7-9
A sister seedling of Moonlight Magic™ with the superb purple-maroon foliage but offering abundant dark pink flowers and a more rounded compact habit. Flowers earlier than Moonlight Magic, beginning in July and still colorful in September. The foliage color is not diminished even in the heat of the south. Bonnie Dirr sings the praise of Midnight Magic™ by deeming it "the most beautiful crape myrtle." Midnight Magic will relegate purpleleaf plums to dinosaur status. Good leaf spot and mildew resistance.
