Description for Abelia

Abelia shrubs, Abelia grandiflora, have attractive foliage, which partially accounts for their long time use in the landscape. The evergreen abelia has red foliage throughout the summer, becoming even deeper and more brilliant in autumn through winter.

Flowers offer several bursts of bloom from spring to fall, with clusters of fragrant and frilly pink and white tubular flowers. In colder areas of the country, the glossy abelia plant is considered semi-evergreen, as it may lose half its leaves in cold winters.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty

Planting and care

When planting abelia in your yard, choose a prominent spot. Also, choose a spot that gets full to partial sun. The glossy abelia plant grows in a variety of soil types, but responds best to a fertile soil amended with organic material.

Sun or part shade. Slightly acid, the moist peaty soil is ideal. Water regularly,weekly or more often in extreme heat. 20 to 35 degrees C Apply any organic fertilizer.
