Pruning: The Magic Carpet Spirea generally requires minimal pruning. If needed, prune in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches, and shape the plant to maintain its desired form. Avoid excessive pruning, as it may reduce flowering and the natural beauty of the shrub.

Fertilization: Feed the Magic Carpet Spirea in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates and evenly distribute the fertilizer around the base of the plant. This will provide the necessary nutrients to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms.

Winter Protection: In zones 5-10, where winter temperatures can be cold, provide adequate winter protection for the Magic Carpet Spirea. Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant, extending out to the drip line, to insulate the roots and protect them from freezing. Consider using burlap or protective covers during periods of extreme cold to shield the plant from harsh weather conditions.


To plant the Magic Carpet Spirea (Spiraea japonica 'Walbuma'), select a location in your garden that receives full sun to partial shade. Prepare the planting area by loosening the soil and incorporating organic matter to enhance drainage and fertility. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, place the spirea in the hole, and backfill with soil, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Water thoroughly after planting and apply a layer of mulch around the base to conserve moisture and deter weeds. Whether planted in a pot or in the ground, the Magic Carpet Spirea will thrive with proper care and attention.

The Magic Carpet Spirea thrives in well-drained soil and requires regular watering to maintain adequate moisture levels. Water deeply and thoroughly, allowing the soil to slightly dry between waterings. Adjust the frequency based on weather conditions, but generally aim for 1-2 inches of water per week. This shrub flourishes in full sun to partial shade, receiving at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight daily. While it can tolerate some shade, optimal sunlight exposure will enhance foliage colors and overall plant vigor.
