The Purple Magic Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Purple Magic') is a captivating, deciduous ornamental shrub valued for its vibrant purple flowers and manageable size. Perfect for small gardens, landscapes, and container plantings, this low-maintenance plant offers a burst of color from summer to fall.
The Purple Magic Crape Myrtle is a compact shrub that typically reaches a height and spread of 6 to 10 feet, making it an ideal choice for smaller spaces or as an accent plant in larger landscapes. Suited for USDA hardiness zones 7 to 9, it flourishes in full sun, requiring at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. This resilient plant adapts well to various soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils, as long as they are well-drained.
The Purple Magic Crape Myrtle features dark green foliage that provides a striking contrast to its vivid purple flowers. In addition, its smooth, exfoliating bark adds textural interest to the landscape, particularly during the winter months when the plant is dormant.
The most outstanding feature of the Purple Magic Crape Myrtle is its profuse display of deep purple flowers. The blooms appear in dense clusters, or panicles, which can be up to 5 inches long. The flowering period begins in mid-summer and continues through early fall, providing a long-lasting and eye-catching display.
The flowers of the Purple Magic Crape Myrtle not only offer visual appeal but also attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. This makes it an excellent choice for gardeners looking to support local wildlife and create a lively, dynamic garden space.
