The Moonlight Magic Crape Myrtle brings a unique blend of pure white flowers against dark purple leaves, in a sturdy upright large shrub growing to 12 feet tall, if untrimmed, Even in spring it is beautiful, with bold dark leaf coloring, instead of boring green leaves. That rich purple-red foliage stays richly colored throughout the summer and right up to leaf drop. The flowers begin in early summer, and continue until the first frost, looking vibrant and sophisticated against the contrast leaves. Use this tree as specimen in a lawn, behind shorter plants, or as an informal screen or hedge. With spring trimming it can be maintained just 6 or 8 feet tall, and still flower profusely for months and months.

  • Purple foliage in spring, and all summer long
  • Great contrast of white blooms all summer and fall
  • Easily grown even in poor soil, heat and sun
  • Disease resistance means clean foliage all season
  • Perfect size for informal screens and hedges

Grow your Moonlight Magic Crape Myrtle a sunny place, and it thrives even in poor, dry soil, once established. This tree thrives in hot locations, even near the sea, as it is salt-spray tolerant too. It has been specially bred to be resistant to both powdery mildew and leaf spot diseases, so those beautiful leaves will always look glossy and clean, even in heat and humidity. It has no serious pests, and it grows rapidly. To keep the plant shorter and bushier, prune the stems from the previous year back to just a few inches long, in early spring, before new growth begins. For a taller plant, simply remove the tips of the branches. Removing spent flower clusters will encourage continuous flowering for months and months.
