First Editions® Ruffled Red Magic™ Crapemyrtle
Lagerstroemia 'PIILAG-VII' PP27,303
Talk about red AND ruffled! This new crapemyrtle has distinctly different, carnation-like, glowing red flowers that show beautifully against the lustrous dark green foliage. Foliage turns orange-red in fall. The habit is upright, but compact, with dense branching. Like the others in the Magic series, Ruffled Red™ reblooms in late summer if the first flush of flowers is deadheaded. It is also resistant to Cercospora leaf spot and powdery mildew, which is quite a breeding accomplishment in red crapes. Great for use in smaller gardens or planted in rows for a long lasting flowering hedge.
