Flowering Shrubs Add Color to Your Garden
Easy to grow, Abelia features a nicely mounded habit ranging in sizes from three to six feet in height and width. The colorful foliage and abundant blooms of Abelia add color to landscapes as hedges, mass plantings, or decorative containers. Since Abelia blooms form on new growth it is recommended that any pruning be done in early spring or in the fall.
Abelia may be planted in sun or part shade with varieties ranging in hardiness zones from 5-9 creating great winter interest and beautiful fall foliage especially in warmer climates. Abelia is considered a semi-evergreen shrub in the southern states. For an added bonus Abelia blooms will attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden and is also a deer resistant shrub.
