Hardiness Zones:

Quick Overview:

Very compact Abelia with glossy, vivid green foliage that takes on tangerine-pink tints in fall. Ideal for foundation planting under windows, the front of the shrub border or a low informal hedge plant. Evergreen or semi-deciduous where colder.


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. 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.
