Unique Color and Compact Size: First Editions® Purple Magic Crape Myrtle

  • Excellent Clusters of Violet Blooms
  • Semi-Dwarf Size for Versatile Uses
  • Red-Tinged Leaf Buds that Turn Glossy Green

Crape myrtles are a staple of the southern yard. With pompoms of profusely purple blooms and a neat and tidy size, the First Editions® Purple Magic Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Purple Magic' PP 23,906) is the perfect addition to achieve some southern charm in your yard. This brilliant crape myrtle stays compact, so it won't grow unwieldy and can fit compact yards.

The Purple Magic Crape Myrtle's lovely blooms truly are magical. They erupt in deep violet clusters and catch the light for a brilliant show of mauves and lavenders. And you won't be the only one infatuated with the purple mystique of these flowers. Hummingbirds and pollinators love crape myrtles, too!

This southern belle isn't just beautiful because of her ravishing blooms. The Purple Magic Crape Myrtle's foliage is a glossy green that blushes to bright red in the fall. Many people even appreciate and admire how its leaf-buds first appear bright red before changing into the luxurious green leaves that dance in the wind.

The Purple Magic Crape Myrtle can stand alone or add height to a garden bed. Its manageable semi-dwarf height makes it a great choice for a wide array of uses. Create a pollinator's paradise by pairing it with yellow coreopsis or black-eyed Susans. Purple Magic can be kept just about any size you'd like with a yearly pruning in the early spring before it starts growing.

Make the most of your Purple Magic Crape Myrtle by deadheading its early summer blooms when they begin to fade. If you do, you will be gifted with a rebloom in late summer. As for powdery mildew, this crape myrtle was developed with a strong resistance to it. Like other crape myrtles, this one enjoys full sun.

Celebrate summer year after year with your very own Purple Magic Crape Myrtle!
