Midnight Magic Crapemyrtle

Lagerstroemia 'PIILAG-V' PP25,925

Midnight Magic has superb purple-maroon foliage and offers loads of dark pink flowers. It has a rounded compact shape. It begins blooming in July when summer color is in short supply and remains colorful into September. Additionally, the foliage color is not diminished, even in southern heat. With its beautiful dark foliage and good leaf spot and mildew resistance, Midnight Magic is an exciting replacement for purple leaf plums where plums are often defoliated by August.
