Mystic Magenta™ is a new show-stopping Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle with striking black foliage and masses of magenta-pink blooms. The blooms reach their productivity peak during the summer and fall months. This variety has been described as having an intermediate growth habit, reaching 10 to 12 feet tall and 8 feet wide. It can be used as a specimen or in mass plantings. Crape Myrtles look particularly nice when lining driveways or fences. They can also be planted in a container on your deck or patio as long as the container is at least 12" in diameter. These crape myrtles are drought tolerant, mildew resistant and low maintenance. This crape myrtle can be used in Zones 2-5 if in a planter and brought in during the winter months. Zone 6 planting requires protection during the winter, otherwise it will die back to the ground and blooms will be sparse. The Black Diamond is hardy in Zones 7-9.
