Magic Carpet Spirea
Spiraea japonica ‘Magic Carpet’
Vibrant red shoots emerge in spring and mature into rich bronze, red-tipped foliage. Clusters of deep pink flowers cover the plant in early summer and contrast nicely with the foliage. In fall the foliage takes on rich russet tones that remain colorful well into November. Does best in full sun. 2000 MichiganI Grower’s Choice Award Winner.
