Special Attributes

'Midnight Magic' is a truly spectacular mid-size Crape Myrtle from the First Editions® Magic series. Every variety in this series was selected for its ability to produce masses of blooms in rich, true colors...and Midnight Magic doesn't disappoint. It will blow you and any who see it away with its abundant, large clusters of crinkled, dark pink flowers and super dark purple maroon foliage that is very close to black. If the first round of flowers are deadheaded Midnight Magic will produce another flush of flowers late summer through mid-fall. Excellent leaf spot and mildew resistance makes this a problem-free beauty in the landscape.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 5 to 6 feet tall and 5 to 6 feet or so wide makes Midnight Magic Crape Myrtle an ideal selection for smaller garden spaces, and containers. It can be grown as a shrub or lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive small tree, making it an excellent choice for use as a specimen or accent in sunny home foundation plantings or landscape borders. Also makes a very colorful hedge and is spectacular in groupings. Whether planted as a specimen or in groupings, this is one plant that is sure to stand out in the landscape!

Spacing:  4' for solid hedge; 8' + for space between plants



Cultural Preferences

Midnight Magic Crape Myrtle is very easy to grow. It is not picky about soil type provided the soil is well-drained. Full sun is preferred and results in heavier flower production. Light shade is tolerated but flowering will be diminished in more shade. Has shown excellent resistance to powdery mildew.
