The Purple Magic Crape Myrtle is a deciduous plant that typically grows to a height of 8 to 12 feet (2.4 to 3.7 meters) with a spread of 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters). It has a rounded, upright growth habit and develops a smooth, mottled bark that adds visual interest to the landscape.

One of the most striking features of the Purple Magic Crape Myrtle is its profusion of purple flowers. These flowers appear in large clusters during the summer months, creating a captivating display of color. The flowers are followed by small, round seed capsules that persist into the fall.

This crape myrtle variety thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. It is relatively low-maintenance and can tolerate heat and drought once established. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to promote healthy growth and maintain its shape.

The Purple Magic Crape Myrtle is a popular choice for adding vibrant color and beauty to gardens, borders, or as a focal point in the landscape. It attracts butterflies and other pollinators, enhancing its overall appeal
