FIRST EDITIONS Ruffled Red Magic Crape Myrtle 3 Gallon

$42.99

Talk about red AND ruffled! This new crape myrtle has distinctly different, carnation-like, glowing red flowers that show beautifully against the lustrous dark green foliage.

Like the others in the Magic series, Ruffled Red re blooms in late summer if the first flush of flowers is deadheaded.
