Quick Overview:

An exciting development in crape myrtle breeding, Coral Magic forms a beautiful rounded, dense shrub loaded with salmon-pink flowers in early summer. The new foliage is glossy and reddish in color, eventually turning dark green. Like all the Magics, it has excellent resistance to leaf spot and powdery mildew.

Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Does well in loamy, clay soils with good drainage. Benefits from a slow release fertilizer. Overly fertile soils tend to produce lush foliage growth at the expense of flowering with somewhat increased susceptibility to winter injury. Water roots deeply, particularly in dry spells, but avoid wetting the foliage.
