FIRST EDITIONS Lunar Magic Crape Myrtle (3 Gallon)


(1 customer review)

This beautiful crape combines rich purple-black foliage, loads of solid white flower clusters on red stems and a beautiful upright oval shape. Compared to Moonlight Magic, Lunar Magic is much more generous in flower production and more intermediate in stature. This prolific bloomer starts flowering in June and can be cycle pruned to bring plants into flower every 35-45 days. Perfect for containers, hedges, landscapes, and as accents!

    The white blooms really stand out with the darker foliage
