Quick Overview:

This Abelia hybrid is a rounded, spreading, multi-stemmed shrub in the honeysuckle family . Rounded shrub with arching branches and purple-green winter foliage. Old fashioned shrub with an abundance of small, fragrant white flowers in summer. Attracts bees and butterflies. Deer resistant. This hybrid is a cross between A. chinensis and A. uniflora.


Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best flowering in full sun. Prefers moist, organically rich soils which drain well. Nearly evergreen in the South. Blooms on new wood, so prune as needed (e.g., remove stems lost to winter and, if desired, thin to the ground up to 1/3 of old stems) in late winter to early spring.
