Abelia x grandiflora

Glossy Abelia

Finely-textured, glossy green leaves, compact growth and a long blooming season make Abelias attractive shrubs for hedges, screens and bank covers. Abelias are evergreen in warmer climates and semi-deciduous in colder climates. Prune to remove deadwood and to keep the shrub dense. The two most popular hybrids vary in height and flower color.
