RUFFLED RED MAGIC™ CRAPEMYRTLE

Buy Ruffled Red Magic™ Crapemyrtle online. Talk about red AND ruffled! This new crape myrtle 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.
