PLANT DESCRIPTIONS & FACTS
 
Spirea x bumalda 'Magic Carpet' ( Plant Patent #9363 )


Overall Description

A fairly low growing spirea cultivar that is somewhat similar in coloration to Neon Flash Spirea, but not quite as intense of a lime green color to the foliage in the spring. Has outstanding orange/red new growth, and very nice bright pink flowers during bloom. Very hardy variety that was introduced from the U.K. by David Tristram. One of our favorite spireas of them all - wonderful compact, dense growth habit that can be sheared/trimmed to desired shape & size. Best color & blooms in full sun, but will accept partial shade as well.
