Tiny, tiny, tiny describes this shrub. There are three 'Carpet' spirea that are super miniatures; this one, 'Green Carpet' and 'Sparkling Carpet'. All are under 8"! 'Magic Carpet' is also small, but is about twice the size of these other three. Great shrub for the rockery where the yellow leaves are offset by bright pink flowers.
