The Plum Magic Crape Myrtle produces an abundance of crinkly, pink blooms July to September. New growth starts out red in the spring before turning green in the summer. An additional perk of the Magic Series Crape Myrtles is the size. A smaller and more compact Crape Myrtle, this tree easily transforms into a nice hedge with its round, bushy form. Growing only 6 to 8 feet high makes this a perfect, compact ornamental tree to dress up any landscape. Not only is this tree bursting with color and compact, but it is also resistant to disease.
