First Editions ‘Lunar Magic’ Crape Myrtle
This beautiful crape combines rich purple-black foliage with loads of solid white flower clusters on red stems! They grow in a beautiful upright oval shape. Compared to Moonlight Magic, Lunar Magic is much more generous in flower production and more intermediate in stature. This prolific bloomer starts flowering in June and can be cycle pruned to bring plants into flower every 35-45 days for sales from early summer through fall. The 2017 growing season was a real test for Cercospora and powdery mildew with many varieties succumbing to the unusually high disease pressure, but Lunar Magic® came through unscathed.
