(Abelia) Abelia Ruby Anniversary™ provides an abundance of color forming ruby-red new growth that deepens into dark, glossy foliage. From mid-summer until frost, clusters of salmon pink buds open to sweetly scented white flowers with soft pink bracts that attract butterflies. Abelia provides constant foliage interest in the landscape. Looks spectacular when used as specimen plant, or in decorative patio containers. Ruby Anniversary™ is also excellent for mass plantings and groupings. Prune in the late fall or early spring as blooms appear on the new growth. Semi-evergreen in the southern states. The beautiful color of Ruby Anniversary™ will bring enjoyment until frost and is a deer resistant shrub selection.
