    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!!
