A useful long-flowering semi-evergreen shrub for a mixed border. This abelia has yellow and green variegated leaves which it hangs on to for most of the year. In June it produces masses of small pink-flushed fragrant trumpet-like flowers on arching branches that go on all summer. As itís slightly tender itís best grown in the shelter of a wall towards the back of a border. Ideal for a small or cottage-style garden.

  • Garden care: Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. In autumn after flowering trim back the flowered shoots to retain a neat and tidy shape. Remove any dead or damaged wood in April.
