Terrific resistance to leaf spot and powdery mildew
Plant Patent Applied For. Cultivar name: 'PIILAG-V'

The recent explosion in Crapemyrtle breeding has resulted in many new color combinations, plant habits, and disease resistances -- and none is more exciting than the First Editions® Magic™ series. Every variety in this series was selected for its ability to produce masses of blooms in rich, true colors on compact to intermediate sized shrubs.

The foliage also displays exciting new colors, as well as superb resistance to leaf spot and powdery mildew. Each Magic™ cultivar is unique, and together they demonstrate the sheer range and beauty of contemporary Crapemyrtles.The most heat-tolerant variety we have seen, Midnight Magic™ withstands sweltering southern summers without scorching a leaf! The rosy-pink blooms continue to arise in great numbers from midsummer through early fall, set against foliage that varies from darkest purple to richest burgundy.

Compact (just 4 to 6 feet high and wide), dense, and colorful, this shrub is simply stunning. Give it full sun and excellent soil drainage, and let Midnight Magic™ do the rest! Zones 6-9.
