Twilight Magic Crape Myrtle
Add mystery to your garden with this pink and plum beauty
It was dusk, just as the sun was setting into the ocean. The guitarist was playing with lightning speed. The dancer was twirling in circles and her crinkled skirt was swirling around her like a cloud. She was mysterious and beautiful. Her dress was the color of this plant - deep plum purple and rich fuchsia-pink – also mysterious and beautiful.
Twilight Magic Crape Myrtle is a big plant – 16’ tall and 8’ wide. It commands attention in your garden, but not just from its grand size. The leaves and stems are an almost magical blend of green, plum and burgundy.
Even when not in bloom this is a beautiful shrub. When it is in bloom, though, it’s breathtaking. The heavily crinkled fuchsia-pink flowers bloom so exuberantly and stand out so starkly from the dark foliage that you can’t help but stopping to notice. Make sure you plant this where it can be seen and enjoyed. There will be admirers.
Like all the plants in the “Magic Crape Myrtle” series, Twilight Magic has excellent resistance to powdery mildew and leaf spot. It makes a great foundation planting, providing interest all year, whether from foliage, flowers or bark.
If you are looking for a showpiece in your garden - something beautiful, mysterious and unforgettable - order Twilight Magic today.
