Purple Magic Crapemyrtle

Lagerstroemia 'Purple Magic' PP23,906

Blooming in early summer with dark purple flowers, this dense shrub form of crapemyrtle fits in the landscape where taller crapemyrtles do not. The new growth has a reddish tint and eventually matures to glossy green, setting off the rich purple flowers. Like the other Magic crapemyrtles, Plum Magic will bloom again in late summer if the first flush of flowers are deadheaded. It is also highly resistant to leaf spot and powdery mildew.
