What is needed when planting Ruffle Red Magic Crape Myrtle?
First, find a sunny spot in the garden for your Ruffled Red Magic Crapemyrtle. Our planting and care guide has information on preparing the soil, mulching and watering. Mulching is important to keep the roots cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Next spring, remember that crapemyrtles are slow to leaf out and it may be late April or first of May before you see signs of new leaves.
