USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone

Special Attributes

With an amazing adaptability to thrive in tough conditions and harsh sites, the Edward Goucher Abelia is an indispensable flowering shrub for the urban garden. Edward Goucher Abelia, also known as Pink Abelia, is an evergreen to semi-evergreen shrub noted for its long bloom time and glossy green foliage that turns an attractive purplish-bronze color during winter. The refreshingly fragrant, one-inch long, bell-shape, lavender-pink flowers with yellow throats appear abundantly in clusters from early summer well into fall. The butterflies and hummingbirds love the flowers and will thank you for planting this one!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 5 to 6 feet tall and wide, Edward Goucher Abelia is ideal for use as a colorful hedge or specimen in sunny to partially shaded landscape and flowering shrub borders. Also a nice background plant or centerpiece in a butterfly garden. Its drought tolerance makes it suitable for the Xeriscape and the summer-long flowers are a hummingbird and butterfly magnet.

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedges, 10 feet or more apart for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Edward Goucher Abelia is easy to grow in average, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. A low maintenance plant, it has demonstrated excellent resistance to deer, disease, drought, heat and insects. Pruning isn't required but the plant responds well to it. We give it a light trimming one time a year in late winter, before new growth begins to emerge.
