Lagerstroemia Ruffled Red Magic™ (Crape Myrtle) is an upright deciduous shrub or small tree with abundant clusters of carnation-like, glowing red flowers at its branch tips in mid to late summer. They emerge amidst the superb lustrous dark green foliage, which turns orange-red in fall. Highly resistant to leaf spot and powdery mildew, it makes a great specimen plant or flowering hedge, thanks to the beauty of its blooms and foliage.

  • Grows up to 9-12 ft. tall (270-360 cm) and 7-9 ft. wide (210-270 cm).
  • A full sun lover, this plant is easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Drought and heat tolerant. Water regularly until established. To help crape myrtles retain water, mulch with organic matter 2-3 in. deep (5-7 cm).
  • Good disease and pest resistance. Crape myrtles are not usually browsed by deer.
  • Perfect as a specimen plant or for foundation plantings. Effective as a screen or informal hedge in mild winter areas.
  • During the growing season, clip off spent flowers to promote a second, lighter bloom.
  • Crape myrtles bloom on new wood and should be pruned in winter or early spring. Remove dead branches any time.
