Moonlight Magic Crapemyrtle

Lagerstroemia 'PIILAG-IV' PP25,478

Moonlight Magic Crapemyrtle

Moonlight Magic has beautiful purple-maroon foliage that holds its color through summer heat. Bright white blooms provide sharp contrast from the foliage in late July and August. The upright habit is perfect for a small tree. Like our other dark leaf Magic crapemyrtle, Moonlight Magic is disease resistant and an excellent replacement for purple leaf plums in areas where plums are defoliated by August.
