Does anyone have experience with this spirea? I'm choosing between Golden Glitter and Magic Carpet...

I should have qualified... this will be a specimen in the back of the bed near low(ish) perennials - autumn joy sedum, midnight wine weigela, a few different peonies. I'm looking for something complimentary to those colors. This is in full sun, with reflective heat from the house -- exposure is mostly south, slightly southeast -- so it gets a little warm, to say the least. Zone 5, KC area.

I am not familiar with Golden Glitter, but I can see Magic Carpet doing well with those plants. My favorite spirea is 'Ogon'. I love the finely textured foliage. It has nice coloring too but primarily solid chartreuse -- not as diverse coloring as Magic Carpet.

Thanks Wendy, I chose the golden glitter because it blooms white, and I have nothing else that does (except an early peony). So- like everything else in gardening, it's an experiment. I would definitely like to find a place for magic carpet someplace! And ogon- I will look into that one!
