Spiraea X bumalda 'Magic Carpet' - Magic Carpet Spirea

The Magic Carpet Spirea reminds me a great deal of a miniature version of the Goldflame; it has foliage that starts red and fades to yellow, then to green later in the growing season. Bloom color is a bright pink, and foliage is shorter and a bit plumper than it's Goldflame cousin. Removing blooms before they turn brown can result in a second bloom of flowers later in the growing season. It also has some wonderful bronze fall colors. This plant is very well suited for the smaller garden where space is at a premium, with it's mature height topping out at 15-18", and a mature spread of 24". It's tolerant of most soils and likes to bask in full sun or at least part sun.
