Spiraea japonica 'Magic Carpet'

Spiraea japonica ‘Magic Carpet’

Vibrant red shoots emerge in spring and mature into rich chartreuse to red-tipped ombre foliage. Clusters of deep pink flowers cover the plant in early summer. In fall the foliage takes on rich russet tones that remain colorful well into November. Best foliage color transition in full sun, but will still flower with predominately green foliage in part-shade.
