Twilight Magic Crapemyrtle

Lagerstroemia 'PIILAG-VIII' PP27,194

The deep plum-colored foliage paired with pink flowers make Twilight Magic a truly stunning crapemyrtle. This large shrub or small tree really stands out in the landscape when it blooms. Flower production is profuse compared to similar varieties, and its disease resistance is great. Even when not in flower, the dark foliage is handsome all on its own. Twilight Magic is an excellent alternative to purple-leafed plums in areas where plums are defoliated by August.
