Special Attributes

Every variety in the Magic Crape Myrtle Series series was selected for its ability to produce a profusion of flower clusters in rich, true colors...and with its abundant, large clusters of ruffled, glowing red flowers in summer Ruffled Red Magic doesn't disappoint! Deadheading spent flowers often prolongs the bloom season well into fall. The dark glossy green foliage on this upright but compact Crape Myrtle to 10 feet tall provides a wonderful backdrop for the gorgeous flowers. A very vigorous grower with excellent resistance to powdery mildew.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 10 to 12 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, the Ruffled Red Magic Crape Myrtle is an ideal selection for smaller garden spaces and in containers. It can be grown as a shrub or lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive and colorful small tree that serves well as a focal point specimen or accent in sunny landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Also makes a very colorful hedge and is spectacular in groupings. Whether planted as a specimen or in groupings, this is one crape that is sure to stand out in the landscape!

Suggested Spacing:  5 to 6 feet apart for solid hedge; 12 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Ruffled Red Magic Crape Myrtle is very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and as much sun as you can give it. For best flowering 6 hours or more of direct sunlight is suggested. Constantly soggy or wet soil is problematic. Has shown excellent resistance to powdery mildew and is quite drought tolerant when established.
