The Q&A Archives: Magic Carpet Spiraea

Question: I just bought this plant at Mendons Nursery in Paradise, CA.There was nothing to tell me how tall this would get and how far to space them. Do you have any information on this plant. I guess it is a ground cover type of plant. Thanks, Pat Sayer

Answer: Magic Carpet Spiraea (Spiraea japonica 'Walbuma')is a dwarf shrub offering vibrant foliage and flower color. It has a low, spreading habit. Expect each plant to grow 18" tall and about 2' wide. Space your plants 2' apart for dense cover in a bed.
