FIRST EDITIONS Midnight Magic Crape Myrtle


(3 customer reviews)

Midnight Magic™ has superb purple-maroon foliage and offers loads of dark pink flowers. It has a rounded compact shape. It begins blooming in July when summer color is in short supply and remains colorful into September. Additionally, the foliage color is not diminished, even in southern heat. With its beautiful dark foliage and good leaf spot and mildew resistance, Midnight Magic is an exciting replacement for purple leaf plums where plums are often defoliated by August.

    Good product

  2. Jo

    We are hoping to see a lot of growth over the next few years
    the blooms are dense and full and lasted quite some time! Overall a great purchase

  3. Dena D.

    They arrived healthy and only had little to no leaf damage from shipping. I would say they even look better than many trees/shrubs I have seen at garden centers, and far more reasonable than others of comparable size!
