Crape Myrtle (Lunar Magic) First Editions Plant - 1 Gallon


This beautiful crape combines rich purple-black foliage, loads of solid white flower clusters on red stems and a beautiful upright oval shape. Compared to Moonlight 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. 

Care

  • Fertilize once per year as new growth emerges

  • Plant in full sun

  • Water thoroughly every other day for first month

  • Prune each Late Winter/Early Spring to achieve desired height and shape
