A useful long-flowering semi-evergreen shrub for a mixed border. This abelia has attractive glossy deep green leaves which it hangs on to for most of the year. From June until October it produces masses of small fragrant pink-flushed trumpet-like flowers on arching branches. As itís slightly tender itís best grown in the shelter of a wall towards the back of a border. Ideal for a cottage-style garden.

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