Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers acidic, well-drained, moist soil. Prefers medium moisture. Prune in late fall or early spring, blooms on new growth. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application. Semi-evergreen in the south.

The foliage emerges a unique bronze-orange color and then matures to an attractive lime-green as the season progresses. White blooms emerge in spring and intermittently throughout the summer. A very strong bloomer.

  • 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.
