Moonlight Magic™ Crapemyrtle
Blooms Continue for 3 Months or More!
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.An elegant columnar Crapemrytle, Moonlight Magic™ withstands sweltering southern summers without scorching a leaf! The pure white blooms continue to arise in great numbers from midsummer through early fall, set against foliage of dark maroon.
Tall and majestic at 8 to 12 feet high and just 4 to 6 feet wide, dense, and colorful, this shrub is simply stunning. Instead of forming a vase shape, it remains rigidly upright, in a narrow silhouette. And it's even suitable for containers!
Give it full sun and excellent soil drainage, and let Moonlight Magic™ do the rest! Zones 6-9.
