Sunset Magic™ Crapemyrtle

Sunset Magic Crapemyrtle is compact beauty that has large red inflorescences that cover the plant and put on quite the show against the dark foliage. Sunset Magic flowers more heavily than other dark-leafed red crapemyrtle on the market. The disease-resistant deep black-purple leaves are flat, lustrous, and hold their dark color into late summer.
