Sunset Magic™ Crapemyrtle

Lagerstroemia 'PIILAG-IX' PP29,325

Talk about a sizzling combination! This compact beauty has large brilliant red flower heads and flowers more heavily than other reds with dark foliage. Deep black-purple leaves lay flat, are lustrous and hold their dark color into late summer. Foliage has been disease free to date. Like our other dark leaf Magic™ crapes, Sunset Magic™ is Cercospora resistant and an excellent problem-free replacement for purple leaf plums in areas where plums are defoliated by August.
