The Midnight Magic™ Crape Myrtle has rich, purple-red foliage that holds it color from the moment it appears in spring, right through to the end of fall. It grows just 4 to 6 feet tall, so it fits perfectly into a smaller garden, or as a medium-sized shrub in a larger garden. Plant it alone, or in a group, for a steady supply of color. By July the first deep pink blooms will appear, making a vibrant contrast with the foliage. These persist throughout summer and well into fall. This easily grown shrub is invaluable for those hot, sunny spots in your garden, and in dry areas with poor soil. You will love the seasons of color and interest this plant delivers, while asking almost nothing in care from you.

  • Constant color from deep purple-red foliage
  • Dark pink flowers from July through September
  • Tough, reliable and drought-resistant
  • Leaves are always glossy and free of diseases
  • Ideal size for smaller gardens or mass planting

Plant the Midnight Magic Crape Myrtle in full sun, for the best foliage color and continuous blooms. It thrives in any well-drained soil, including sands and gravels, as well as clay soil. Once established it is very drought resistant, and its leaves will stay clean and disease free, even during hot, humid weather, because it is highly resistant to the common diseases of crape myrtles. Use it among other shrubs, as a short screen or informal hedge, or as a container plant on your terrace. However and wherever you grow it, you will love the ease with which it delivers color from spring to fall.
