Shrub

Midnight Magic crapemyrtle is unique in flower and foliage. Midnight is a good name for the dark dark purple foliage that holds up perfectly well in the sizzling heat we get here in the Deep South. Magic is a good name for the way the deep pink flowers look against this almost black foliage.

The size is perfect to blend into a planting with other shrubs and perennials. It's a good size for a container plant too.

We think our two purple-leaved crapemyrtles are "wow plants" and offer them as choices for your varying preferences. Lagerstroemia Midnight Magic is smaller than Sunset Magic and has pink flowers instead of coral red.

Midnight Magic crapemyrtle is another First Editions® crapemyrtle developed to expand the color pallet.

  • smaller statured for smaller spaces
  • since it's smaller it will work well in a container (consider a large container)
  • colorful purple summer foliage and leaf color holds well through summer
  • flower power for a long duration

How do I prune Midnight Magic crapemyrtle?
Since this is a shorter-statured crapemyrtle, there is no need to prune it, unless you want to deadhead any seed heads that form.

If you do need to keep this cultivar a certain size for where it's planted, please don't "crape murder" it, rather, read this article for the best directions we've read.
