Spirea - Magic Carpet
The Spirea 'Magic Carpet', Spirea japonica 'Magic Carpet', is a colorful shrub that fits almost anywhere in the landscape.
In spring, the leaf shoots emerge vibrant red, maturing into rich bronze to light green, red-tipped foliage.
Clusters of deep pink flowers cover the plant in early summer. This bush is a beauty, and with some judicious deadheading and the right climate, the flowers will rebloom until November.
In fall the foliage takes on russet tones that remain colorful well into winter months.
The 18 to 24 inch rounded plants are full and bushy. Full sun brings out the brightest colors, and this plant is very drought tolerant.
If you want some fall fireworks in your garden, make Magic Carpet spirea your centerpiece!
