Crape Myrtle - First Editions® Coral MagicLagerstroemia indica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 7-9
The Coral Magic Crape Myrtle is the perfect tree for your yard if you are looking for a small but vibrant myrtle. Coral Magic grows only 6-10 feet high and wide. Because of this, it fits nicely in smaller yard areas. Despite its small size, this crape myrtle will "wow" with its bundles of vibrant coral-pink flowers. Before the tree blooms, new red foliage emerges. By summer, it turns to dark green. Coral Magic is hardy in Zones 6-9 and should be planted in full sun with well-drained soil. It is mildew and leaf spot resistant.
USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
About First Editions™
All of the plants were professionally shipped and arrived in great shape. We received two of these and two of the smaller crape myrtles (Lunar Magic). We treated all of the plants identically, with regard to transplant wait time and the other instructions that were enclosed with the shipment. We are still watering them twice a day (ten minutes sprinkler). The small plants are thriving, but the larger ones are not looking so good. One has shed several of its leaves. We are hoping that they will start to take off here in a couple of weeks. Keeping our fingers crossed!
Loving my new trees/shrubs... they arrived in excellent conditions...I look forward to enjoying these for years to come.
