About the Spiraea -
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.
In fall the foliage takes on russet tones that
remain colorful well into November. The 18 to 24
inch rounded plants are full and bushy. Full sun
brings out the brightest colors. This plant is very
drought tolerantand beautiful in the fall.
