Special Attributes

Rose Creek Abelia might not have the brightly colored foliage of some of the golden or white leaved varieties but it's still a year round color factory we love! Rose Creek Abelia is a flowering powerhouse producing LOADS of fragrant flowers and, not too mention, some very handsome, glossy, dark green foliage that turns to burgundy during the cool season. Starting in late spring the white tubular flowers are produced densely in 3-inch snowball shaped clusters at the end of almost every branch on the shrub. As temperatures cool in the fall, the flower sepals take on a dusty rose color that contrasts beautifully with the burgundy foliage color. Both butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the flowers.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Rose Creek Abelia has many uses in the landscape. Its smaller size of about 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide makes it ideal for uase as an accent or specimen in smaller landscape spaces. In larger landscape spaces it is ideal for use in small to large groupings, mass plantings on embankments, or as a low hedge. It's the perfect choice for underplanting a small tree such as crape myrtle, taller growing upright Japanese maples, or chaste tree (Vitex). 





Cultural Preferences

Rose Creek Abelia is very easy to grow in most any average soil in full sun to part shade. It prefers a moist but well-drained soil however is exceptionally tolerant of dry soil conditions when established. The best flowering and foliage color occur in full to mostly sun. Maintenance is minimal. We prune our Abelia for shaping purposes one time a year in late winter or early spring. That said, plants respond very well to shearing for hedges or formal shapes. It is evergreen in the southern zones where it grows and might be semi-deciduous some winters in zones north of 7a-7b.
