Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle - Mystic Magenta™ CareView Full Planting & Care Instructions
Crapes are full sun lovers, so plant in an area with well-drained soil and 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily.
Though they are drought tolerant once established, you may have to water young trees more often, especially in the summer heat.
Will greatly benefit from a light application of a complete, balanced, slow-release fertilizer formula in the early spring and summer seasons.
Iridescent Pink Blooms + Dramatic Foliage
Why Black Diamond® Mystic Magenta Crape Myrtle Trees?
Spectacular for large and small spaces alike, the standout feature of the Black Diamond Mystic Magenta Crape Myrtle lies in the contrast between dark foliage and iridescent pink blooms.
The Mystic Magenta is an impressive specimen. Due to its nearly black foliage, the cheery pink flowers have a glowing, iridescent effect in direct or partial sunlight.
This Black Diamond Crape Myrtle will flower for months, giving at least three seasons of interest. And since Crape Myrtles are easily pruned, you can implement them as hedges, garden accents or potted plants - or even prune the lower branches to create a specimen tree.
Even better? It's fast-growing and low maintenance. These Crape Myrtles require minimal pruning, and the Mystic Magenta is resistant to powdery mildew, which causes similar varieties to die back.
