Special Attributes

A WILSON BROS INTRODUCTION, 'Super Gold' is a head-turning dwarf Abelia producing stunning, bright golden-yellow leaves on compact, mounding, evergreen plants. The leaves contrast beautifully with the red new stems. An abundance of fragrant, white to light pink flowers are produced during summer into fall attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. In our gardens, Super Gold has demonstrated exceptional tolerance to drought, heat, humidity, and disease, and insects and deer don't touch it!

Super Gold Abelia is a dwarf that naturally grows in a dense mound to 3 or so feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide at maturity. That said, it responds very well to shearing so can be kept smaller with minimal pruning. We're not that into the formal look, so prune ours for shaping purposes only one time a year in late winter, before new leaves begin to emerge.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 3 to 3.5 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide, the Super Gold Abelia is ideal for use as an accent or specimen, in groupings, or as a natural or formal clipped hedge in sunny landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Excellent for mass plantings on embankments. Combines beautifully with plants and trees that have purple, red or dark green foliage, such as Loropetalumspurple leaf Crape myrtles, and red-leaf Japanese maples. A fine selection for Asian-themed gardens, butterfly and hummingbird gardens, yellow theme gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs).


Suggested Spacing:  3 feet apart for solid hedges, 6 feet or more apart for space between plants






Cultural Preferences

Super Gold Abelia is very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. That said, established plants are exceptionally drought tolerant and 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, however plants respond very well to more frequent shearing for hedges or formal shapes. Might be semi-deciduous some winters in zones north of 7a-7b.
