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.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
