Twilight Magic™ Crape Myrtle produces dark, almost black, burgundy-red flowers that are truly eye-catching. The flowers emerge in mid-summer and continue blooming through the fall, creating a long-lasting display of rich color. The contrast between the dark flowers and the green foliage is striking and adds a touch of drama to any landscape.

This cultivar typically grows to a height of about 8 to 12 feet (2.4 to 3.6 meters) with a spread of 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters). It has a rounded, compact growth habit, making it suitable for smaller gardens or as a container plant.

Twilight Magic™ Crape Myrtle prefers full sun and well-drained soil. It is relatively drought-tolerant once established and requires minimal maintenance. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or crossing branches and to promote a more open and balanced canopy.
