The Ruffled Red Magic™ Crape Myrtle absolutely blew us away, with its powerful red-orange blooms. Their vibrant coloring is emphasized by the way the carnation-like flowers hide the yellow stamens. The rich green foliage is a perfect background, and in fall the leaves turn wonderful shades of orange, yellow and red. Grow this medium-sized shrub as a stunning lawn specimen or at the back of a bed. Plant it as a screen or against a fence or wall. You can even grow it in a large tub for color anywhere.

  • Stunning rich red-orange blooms
  • Unique ‘carnation’ flower form intensifies the bright coloring
  • In bloom from June to September
  • Resistant to disfiguring foliage diseases
  • Hardy in zone 6, as a smaller flowering shrub

The Ruffled Red Magic™ Crape Myrtle thrives in full sun, and enjoys well-drained soil, even drier and poor soils. Don’t plant in wet places. This variety is resistant to leaf diseases, like powdery mildew or leaf spot, so the foliage is always clean and green. Insect pests are rarely problems and deer usually ignore it. A simple trim or harder pruning is spring, and removing the first spent flower heads, is all the care needed.
