First Editions® Purple Magic™ Crape Myrtle
- Model Number: Purple Magic
The dark purple flowers of Purple Magic command attention. “’Purple Magic’ is the truest, richest purple I’ve ever seen in a crape myrtle,” says Dr. Michael Dirr, breeder and founding partner of Plant Introductions, Inc. New leaves start out a with a red hue, maturing to a glossy green. Purple Magic is a spring bloomer, so prune it in the winter. Deadheading the first flush of flowers can encourage a summer bloom.
