Lunar Magic® Crapemyrtle

Lagerstroemia 'Baillagone' PP30,360

Lunar Magic Crapemyrtle flower

This beautiful crape combines rich purple-black foliage, loads of solid white flower clusters on red stems and a beautiful upright oval shape. Compared to Moonlight Magic, Lunar Magic® is much more generous in flower production and more intermediate in stature. This prolific bloomer starts flowering in June and can be cycle pruned to bring plants into flower every 35-45 days for sales from early summer through fall. The 2017 growing season was a real test for Cercospora and powdery mildew with many varieties succumbing to the unusually high disease pressure, but Lunar Magic® came through unscathed.
