Shadow Magic Crapemyrtle

Lagerstroemia 'Bailllagtwo' PPAF

The combination of prolific dark rosy blooms and dark purple leaves make Shadow Magic Crapemyrtle a standout in any warm-climate landscape. While many dark leaf crapemyrtle are riddled with foliar issues, Shadow Magic is incredibly disease resistant, especially to powdery mildew, so the glossy dark leaves remain brilliant spring through fall. More compact than Twilight Magic, this variety matures to 7-9′ tall and 5-7′ wide, creating a beautiful upright shrub or small tree.
