Lagerstroemia 'Midnight Magic' ('PIILAG-V')

Common name crape myrtle
Family lythraceae
Life cycle shrub (Z6-9)
Flowers pink (summer)
Size 4-6'
Light sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Purple-maroon-leaved, low-growing variety of crape myrtle, reportedly maintaining its deep foliage coloration even in full sun in the south. Started blooming in mid-July of its first year in our garden, and in late June the following year. I think it looks especially lovely planted between two cannas, whose large fresh-green leaves are a wonderful background for the smaller dark leaves of the crape myrtle. One of our garden's many happy coincidences.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: waterfall pondside, left fence border, front fence border
