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

Special Attributes

Edward Goucher Abelia, also known as Pink Abelia, is an evergreen to semi-evergreen shrub noted for its glossy deep green foliage and long bloom time. The one-inch long, bell-shaped, lavender-pink flowers with yellow throats have a light and refreshing fragrance and are produced in abundance from early summer well into fall attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. Foliage turns an attractive purplish-bronze color during winter. Its amazing adaptability to tough conditions and harsh sites make this abelia indispensable for the urban garden.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Edward Goucher Abelia is a great choice for a colorful, natural hedge. It is also a nice addition to flowering shrub borders or a centerpiece in a butterfly garden.  It can be planted in a flowering shrub border, in groupings, in Asian inspired gardens, Butterfly Gardens, Cottage Gardens, Perennial Gardens, Rock Gardens and in Xeriscape Gardens (Low Water needs).





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.
