Quick Overview:

‘Kaleidoscope’ was discovered by Kent Bell of Marshville, North Carolina in 1997 as a variegated branch sport of Abelia x grandiflora ‘Little Richard’. ‘Kaleidoscope’ is a dense, semi-evergreen, compact shrub with reddish purple stems and foliage that emerges green and yellow, turns gold in summer, and fiery red to orange for fall and winter. The coloration is most vibrant when the shrub is grown in full sun. Its pink buds open into white fragrant flowers that persist into fall. ‘Kaleidoscope’ grows 2 to 2.5 ft. tall and 3 to 4 ft. wide.

Description

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.
