The Mystic Magenta™ Crape Myrtle is a fabulous new variety of this tough and easy plant, which features brilliant magenta-pink blooms set against black-purple foliage. Crape myrtles are perfect choices for easy gardening, and this beautiful variety blooms continuously from mid-June to mid-October. No seeds are produced, so the blooms just fade away, with no need to trim, and they are immediately replaced with a profusion of more flower heads. The richly-colored foliage makes a garden feature even before the blooms begin, so from early spring to winter, this shrub gives you fabulous color. Untrimmed it will reach 10 or 12 feet in height, but with pruning you can keep it as low as 4 feet – so it is super-versatile around the garden, from planters to hedges and screens.

  • Brilliant magenta-pink blooms keep coming and coming
  • Dark purple-black foliage makes a rich background
  • Drought resistant and grows easily in hot, sunny spots
  • Resistant to mildew and leaf-spot diseases
  • Control the size by pruning to suit your needs

The fast-growing Mystic Magenta™ Crape Myrtle will grow 3 to 4 feet a year, blooming at the ends of every new shoot. Plant it in full sun, in any well-drained soil. It even grows well in sandy and rocky soils, and once established it is amazingly drought-resistant. Unlike older varieties that are often disfigured by foliage disease, this variety as been bred to resist both powdery mildew and leaf spot, so it is always clean and fresh. Fertilize once a year in early spring, and prune at the same time, reducing the length of last-year’s branches to control the size of your bush.
