Features

It's a colorful, durable, problem-solver!

Abelia is a landscape standard for its summer-long bloom of fragrant white flowers. Bronze Anniversary adds colorful foliage to the mix, with new growth emerging in sunny yellow. Long branches arch gracefully for a cascading effect. This butterfly and hummingbird magnet grows well in shaded conditions, and is very deer-resistant.

Top three reasons to grow Bronze Anniversary abelia:

- Colorful foliage and fragrant flowers

- performs well in full sun or part shade

- Not eaten by deer

Uses Notes: 

This plant works well as an informal hedge, a specimen planting, in a large container, or as part of a flower garden or foundation planting. Try planting it with red flowers, like bee balm or Maltese cross, or with purple-foliaged plants, like Spilled Wine or ajuga.

Maintenance Notes: 

This easy-to-grow flowering shrub isn't finicky about soil: any well-drained soil will do. It can be pruned in early spring, after the new growth begins to emerge on the stems. Remove dead wood in spring as necessary.

If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.

  • I have bought more than several of this ABELIA (bronze anniversary), rather lost count, but they are totally worth the investment. So dainty & "fragile" in appearance, it is anything but, surviving record COLDS (zone 7) "uncovered" its first year and now standing up to record HEAT, this is one tough little customer & absolutely GORGEOUS to boot. This is one fabulous plant, we can't recommend it enough!! NO bugs, no fungus, no thorns, my favorite "deficiencies"! BUY IT, you won't be sorry!!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
