Distinctive Evergreens

A new variety of white variegated abelia. Beautiful silvery-green and creamy white variegated foliage is held on bright red stems. In the spring, new growth emerges bright green with creamy white margins, and by mid-summer matures to medium green with pure white edges. Winter coloration remains variegated with some of the leaves being tinged with soft pink along the margins. In late summer, plants are covered with small, trumpet shaped, fragrant flowers that attract butterflies. Plants are very compact and have consistent color year round. 

This excellent variety is deer, drought, and disease resistant.
