FIRST EDITIONS Shadow Magic Crape Myrtle (3 Gallon)


(1 customer review)

The combination of prolific dark rosy blooms and dark purple leaves make Shadow Magic Crape Myrtle a standout in any warm-climate landscape. While many dark leaf Crape Myrtle’s are riddled with foliar issues, Shadow Magic is incredibly disease resistant, especially to powdery mildew, so the glossy dark leaves remain brilliant spring through fall. More compact than Twilight Magic, this variety matures to 7-9′ tall and 5-7′ wide, creating a beautiful upright shrub or small tree. Perfect for containers, hedges, landscapes, and as accents!
