    Maintenance Notes: 

    Abelia are easy-care plants that don't require regular pruning, though they can be trimmed to shape in early spring. Early spring is also a good time to cut out any dead wood to maintain a neat, open shape. 

    Abelias benefit from a good layer of shredded bark mulch and may be fertilized in spring if you want to encourage more rapid growth. Use a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.

    • Tough little shrub. I was disappointed after the first year (zone 6a, sunny semi-arid climate) and thought I would get around to replacing it. But it re-leafed out and grew a little on its own, so I started watering it a little again, and eventually got some nice flowers to go with the handsome foliage. Not especially attractive in winter here, but still quite good overall.
